Re: Adventurous Volunteers weekend - Lower Snowy River, KNP

Mick, was a good weekend, river level was nothing special and pretty dirty after the recent rain, but ok for weed work. We did the Sandy Ck to Willis section on Saturday and just below Jacobs to the Pinch section on Sunday. Some bigger re growth willows on Saturday and only smaller isolated seedling...

Re: Adventurous Volunteers weekend - Lower Snowy River, KNP

Thanks Steve, As mentioned would be great to get a packrafting contingent motivated. Just don't expect the water levels to be anything outstanding. I should have included both Luke and my email contact details for anyone who wants to register or after further info. Luke McLachlan Ranger - Snowy Rive...

Re: Thredbo River 'Heads Up'

Hey Jules, yep I'll send you some work that's been done on the floristics work for the plots if your interested? Don't know about the teasing but horse issue is certainly going to be a challenge over the next few years!

Re: Wanted - Adventurous Volunteers - Lower Snowy River

No worries Darren, I hope to make this a regular type of an event, with couple of planned trips a year doing sections of river that require weed work or monitoring, so hopefully will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in the future if you can't make this trip. Thanks Sharon, look forward to se...

Re: Wanted - Adventurous Volunteers - Lower Snowy River

Thanks for the reply Steve and kind offer of loaning your raft. I already have a few spare rafts and plenty of canoes, unfortunately I just need the people to put in them to have a paddle and spot and treat willows and blackberries.
No worries, maybe you can make it next time.

Re: Packraft Training in Oz with Jim Gonski !

Hey Steve, just did a reply to your Turros invite and saw your comment here. I have asked Jim if he could put some of his photos and video on a disc and send out when he gets a chance, so hopefully will have more to add to the weekends collection then, and will circulate to all. (Ken, wheres your vi...

Re: Sunday 30th Tuross run possible?

Hey Steve, wish I could but unfortunately works busy for me at moment. Probably whole of January out for me infact. Would love to do Turross at some stage in future with you though. (Keep us in mind for future). Hope you had a good Christmas. Be safe and I expect to see some pictures.

The purpose is to provide some follow up to the ‘Willow Warriors’ adventure conservation project carried out b...

Re: Packraft Training in Oz with Jim Gonski !

Agree with chrisp. Snowies would provide lots of options, but I'm a little biased holding the training locally would make it very easy for me. Lower Snowy would be good off Barry Way, free camping and a couple of good training rapids if water levels right. (I can sort the National Parks approval for...

Re: Packraft Training in Oz with Jim Gonski !

Grasshopper, I'm in Jindabyne so anywhere south of Sydney would work for me, and any of the local rivers, Thredbo, Snowy, uppper Murray etc. would obviously be perfect, and I could help out with logistics this end if that be the case, and of any assistance.

Re: Packraft Training in Oz with Jim Gonski !

Grasshopper, has this training progressed any?
If it looks like its a goer I would be very interested, and may help with making up the numbers so its viable.
Great effort in organising it as well
