BCLG looks to technology to keep landcare active


Boorowa Community Landcare Group (BCLG) has postponed all scheduled events until further notice in the interest of public safety and to comply with government advice on social distancing and non-essential travel.

BCLG is looking into technology that will allow the group to adapt to the current restrictions, with the committee holding a teleconference meeting on Thursday the 23rd of April to discuss possibilities. Suggestions for activities and events that can be held in a virtual space or ideas on ways Landcare can continue to offer a social connection are welcomed, with people encouraged to reach out to the committee.
