The Bundaburrah Creek Dabu Yarra Muran Project strategically links revegetation of native plants to provide materials for weaving workshops to facilitate cultural fishing practices. On 14-15 December the CORRIDOR Project will welcome 20 Indigenous women to create fish and yabbie traps that will be used to educate the broader community through video production about weaving fishnets and string collected from endemic grasses along the Lachlan (Galari) River.
Scientist Joanne Lenehan, the Environmental Water Management Officer for the Lachlan Conservation and Regional Delivery Division, will demonstrate waterbird and plant identification, and explain how surveys over time inform us of the health of our local river corridors.
This workshop is one of many and part of a long-term project to restore cultural practices and inform communities of the responsible grass harvesting and fishing methodologies and practices.
