The Upper Snowy Landcare Network (USLN) wish to congratulate all the participating primary schools, their art teachers and the talented students themselves for contributing such important art pieces for the 2019 calendar.
The theme is, “Tree Dieback on the Monaro – Sad but True” to give us all a chance to reflect on the loss of the magnificent Ribbon Gums (Eucalyptus viminalis) in a pocket the size of the ACT on the Monaro. But also on a positive front to watch the 12 x 1ha tree biodiversity plots planted in response to dieback grow into healthy and diverse habitat.
For many years, under the original instigation of past USLN Chairwoman, Robin Sevenoaks, the USLN have enjoyed setting a theme and then watching art pieces roll in from the many primary schools in the region. While we cannot put all the beautiful art into one single calendar, children have an opportunity to enter each year.
The calendar is available for free at many outlets including: Snowy Mountains (Cooma) Visitors Centre and Cooma Library. Copies are also available at the SE Local Land Services Office in Soho St and if you would like bulk numbers please give Lauren Van Dyke, USLN Coordinator a call Ph: 0411 402 978 or Email: [email protected]

We wish everyone a fun and safe Christmas and a happy and productive 2019.
