Kingoonya NRM district leading the way

What do we need to do to keep on top of weeds? What do we do about tracks that affect the flow of water? What can pastoral properties do to continue being productive under these challenging conditions? These were some of the questions the Kingoonya NRM group were asking and hearing when they brought local community and industry members together to review and adapt the Kingoonya District NRM Action Plan.
