Announcement of the formation of a new Southern Queensland NRM organisation

Condamine Alliance and South West NRM welcome the announcement that they will be forming a new regional organisation in the Southern Region of Queensland to support community-based natural resource management.

 

After several months of discussions and consultation with community members and organisations, it was clear there was strong support for the establishment of a new regional NRM organisation. The new organisation, Southern Queensland NRM, would operate across southern Queensland from Toowoomba to Quilpie in the north and south to cover the granite belt, border rivers and St George flood plains.

 

The new organisation will focus on supporting community members in achieving on-ground natural resource management.

 

This is the formation of a new entity with a strong community-based approach. At the appropriate time, both Condamine Alliance and South West NRM will cease operations and move all operating arrangements to the new entity.

 

An open invitation is extended to all interested persons within the community of the Southern Queensland region to become members of the new organisation.  You are encouraged to call 07 4620 0111 or email membersqnrm@gmail.com to register your interest.

 

This is an exciting time and with the support of the community great things can be achieved by us all in the field of natural resource management.

 

For more information, please contact: SWNRM Chair Mark O’Brien 0427 568 324 or Condamine Alliance Chair George Moore 0437 536 990.
