Every year, when the Jawoyn Rangers begin to plan their annual fire management program, they hold meetings to consult with landowners and custodians.

In early March, Jawoyn Rangers held community fire planning meetings in Kybrook, Beswick, Barunga, Manyallaluk and Katherine.

More than 80 land owners, custodians and stakeholders attended the meetings, including NT Parks and Parks Australia.

The meetings focused on the year’s on-country activities and target areas for burning. They also provided an important opportunity to discuss last year’s fire program.

Community members interested in casual work through the burning season were asked to register with Jawoyn Rangers.

Communities were also asked to nominate representatives for the Healthy Country Planning and Monitoring committee.

If interested in casual work or being on the committee please call Land Manager Scott Herring on (08) 8972 3015.
