Catchment Management Authority seeks local knowledge

Western CMA  acting Catchment Officer Aboriginal Communities Blackie Gordon along with CMA staff Guy Gibbs and Andy Mackay spent last Thursday in town talking to, interviewing and filming local Aboriginal elders.

Of particular interest was the local knowledge about native foods, especially the quandongs, wild oranges and leopard wood trees. There was some interesting discussion on the different regional names for the wild orange.

The video filmed on the day will be used in later CMA publicity and education programs. Comments and thoughts on the Catchment Plan were also recorded.
