Cessnock Council has partnered with Hunter Local Land Services (HLLS) and the Hunter Region Landcare Network (HRLN) to offer a series of workshops early next year.

The purpose of the workshops will be to establish how HLLS and HRLN can assist agricultural enterprises in the region undertake land care activities such as the fencing-off of native vegetation, re-vegetation and erosion control.

Council is currently conducting a survey to assist in developing the workshops and ensuring the information contained is relevant to the issues facing local landholders.

“This is about working with landholders to improve their agricultural productivity while enhancing the capacity of the land to support the many threatened species in the area including woodland birds such as the Regent Honeyeater and the Swift Parrot,” Mayor Bob Pynsent said.

Landholders are encouraged to complete the online survey by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CessnockWorkshops by Friday 16 November.
