Bathurst Women in Productive Pastures and Landscape

Central Tablelands Local Land Services invites agricultural women in the Bathurst area to the next womens’ get together. The event will cover understanding the Endangered Purple Copper Butterfly and its habitat, networking opportunities and hear from a guest speak on mental health.

12.30pm Associate Professor Dr John Dearin from University of Notre Dame Australia will discuss with us the importance of mental health especially during our current seasonal conditions.

2.30pm Finish

Lunch is provided but please bring a plate to share in the paddock, a small blanket and jacket (if the day is cold) sturdy shoes, hat, water and your own mug for a cuppa.  Don't forget your camera!

If you have neighbours, relatives or know of other women in the Bathurst area that might like to come along they are more than welcome.
