35 Individuals from five Landcare groups gathered at Jon and Marg Hauser’s farm for a fantastic informative field day last weekend. Robbie Gray from Bass Coast Landcare displayed the last five years of Fauna Monitoring results utilizing infra- red camera traps mainly in and around the Holden proving ground.
