Following Matt’s presentation to COG last October, subscribers may be interested in this update.
I’m hoping to get Matt back for an update towards the end of 2016.

G'day Folks,

Next week we're launching a booklet, funded by Riverina Local Land Services, all about the Bitterns in Rice Project: Mon. 27th July at the Leeton Soldiers Club, 6.30-8.30 pm. All welcome. Supper provided.

We're also running presentations in Finley, Barham and Deni.

Hear about the story from the beginning; a rice farmer wondering what these strange birds are to the exploits of Robbie the Bittern and his navigation from his birthplace in a Coleambally rice crop to a wetland on the South Australian coast. Presented by Matt Herring from the Bitterns in Rice Project.

Finley Returned Soldiers Club, Tues. 28th July: 5.30-7.30 pm

Barham Golf Club, Weds. 29th July: 4.30-6.30 pm

Deniliquin RSL Club, Thurs. 30th July: 5.30-7.30 pm

Also in the below update on the website are our exciting plans for next season and the news that we'll be taking our project to New York for the Global Food Security conference and to California to see the innovative work being done there. 

You can see previous updates, including Robbie's progress, by clicking on the news link on the front page.

Best regards, Matt
