Heirisson Happenings

Hi Folks, 

Last week.....
No photo description available.
We heard from President Don on his professional subject of
"The Australian Rangelands".

81% of Australia’s land surface, but only 2% of the people live there, of whom 28% are Indigenous.
They are characterised by highly variable and in many cases low rainfall, extreme weather events, long occupation by humans (60,000 years), unique suite of plants and animals, and high frequency of fire.
All economic activity is derived from the natural resources, with the main activities are mineral extraction, grazing domestic animals, tourism and tourism.   Emerging uses are carbon sequestration, station stay tourism, Indigenous tourism, private conservation philanthropy, renewable energy, and bush foods and timbers.  The main threats/ challenges to the rangelands are overgrazing, weeds and pests, climate change, declining population, and remote and poorly designed governance.  Some good news are the regional natural resource management organisations, better regulation of land use, supporting Indigenous management aspirations, new communication technologies, and better fire management.

And also from President Don;

Christmas Lunch – Sunday 28 November

Members and partners are all invited to attend the Christmas Lunch, to be held on Sunday 28 November at Don and Bev’s home, 29 Woodsome Street, Mount Lawley.  Please put it in your diary and more information will be forthcoming!
Here's some pics of President Don presenting awards to winners of the Girrawheen High School Annual Visual Arts Exhibition last Thursday.Pics by Allan McLean.
And one to stick in your diary:
Our last meeting of the year – an evening meeting which will incorporate a six-monthly review of the year to date, will incorporate an Annual General Meeting.  The main agenda items will be the presentation of the Audited Financial Report for 2020-21, and election of office-bearers for 2021-2022 and indicative office-bearers for 2022-23.  A formal notice of meeting will be distributed soon.  But … in the meantime, please give thought to the role you would like to play in the coming year.
And finally.....
Please Don't Forget!!
