As part of burning operations the Jawoyn Rangers and members travelled to the upper Katherine River to systematically open road, burn, visit sites and canoe back down the river. This was an excellent opportunity to get people out, expose them to our work conditions and give them a taste of ranger activities. They were then rewarded with an opportunity to canoe and fish on a beautiful stretch of their river.
A mob of around 30 people, young and old, came out including specialists in bird ID and photo journalism. Due to that late rain event in that area, there was much mud to get bogged in, a lot of water to canoe down and heaps of bream to eat. Thanks to Nitmiluk Tours who assisted with canoe and life jackets and all who participated, for those who missed out please ask Jawoyn Association Aboriginal Corporation about other future activities.
