Watch this great ABC Open video by filmmaker Richard Snashall of the Sandhill Paddock Walk near Hay NSW held in September last year, organised by the ANPC and Riverina Local Land Services, and led by ANPC Project Manager Martin Driver. It focused on 'Sandhill Pine Woodland in the Riverina' which is listed as an Endangered Ecological Community in NSW. The aim was to increase plant identification skills and highlight the importance of revegetation. The extraordinary rainfall in the Riverina last winter resulted in an explosion of native plant growth and germination at both properties visited.
