Bringing Back the Locals

Bethlea Bell is the coordinator for the Queensland Frog Society and shares some information on the native frogs that live in our area.

The New Holland Frog, also known as Eastern Snapping Frog, (Cyclorana novaehollandiae), can be found throughout most of Queensland and northern New South Wales. […]

Vale Jim Price

Jim Price worked alongside the Calliope office staff for years, volunteering his time and knowledge, and assisting with many on-ground work and projects. His association with local natural resource management though, goes back much further than that.

He was actively involved with the Calliope Landcare Group, the Calliope Soil Conservation Association Inc. and Safe Haven at Mount Larcom, a captive breeding and research centre for the northern hairy nosed wombat and home to the bridled nailtail wallaby and koalas.

The nominations are compiled by our project officers, and then presented to the management committee for selection of the best projects based on 4 criteria.
• Property Planning

Middlemount – Google Property Mapping Workshop

Over 18 landholders travelled to Middlemount yesterday Wednesday, November 11th, to take part in a Google Property Mapping workshop. After the huge response from the previous workshop we were lucky enough to be able to offer the people that had missed out another chance to attend.
