It's time to put your soils knowledge to the test.. Competition day has arrived in the Upper Lachlan Regional Soils Skills competition. This is your chance to put your soils knowledge to the test and compete for some great prizes and potentially represent the region in future soils competitions around Australia. The competition is based on a fundamental set of soil skills common to all farmers. The aim is to help you gain more skills in understanding and managing your soil. At the same time it provides a chance to share soils knowledge with other farmers right across the district. All while having fun! This is a fun competition day. It is not necessary to have attended previous days. Participants will gain skills in assessing soil type and soil health as well as dealing with soil constraints. The day is open for everyone, even those who are not ready to compete, it will still be a great opportunity to learn something new about soil. For those who have not attended previous days take a look at the Landcare RASH manual which can be downloaded here: LANDCARE RASH MANUAL NB: it is a large file so please contact us if you are unable to download and we will send you a copy. The competition is open to everyone, all ages, we already have participants ranging from 12-79 (or thereabouts..we wont ask you your age) and it is going to be fun so bring some fellow soil enthusiasts and celebrate this most important resource that we all rely on so much.

Rural landholders in the Taralga region are being offered the opportunity to find out more about which native and pest animals are living on their property. The “Who’s living on my land?” program, run by the National Parks Association of NSW, turns private landholders into citizen scientists by teaching them how to use state of the art cameras to discover the wildlife on their property.
