Community members living around the Winton Wetlands are invited to present their views on the management and the future of the site, as part of research being carried out by Charles Sturt University (CSU). Ms Luisa Perez-Mujica, a PhD student with the University's School of Environmental Sciences and the Institute for Land, Water and Society, will carry out the first community consultation on Thursday 12 December, starting at 6pm. "I am investigating the social, economic and environmental interactions that have resulted from the restoration of the Winton Wetlands and the Master Plan that has been developed to manage these wetlands, particularly involving tourism," Ms Perez-Mujica said. "Apart from providing a habitat for migratory birds, reptiles and aquatic life, the wetlands are part of a wider social and economic context that includes agriculture, tourism, culture and heritage. We want to find out the knowledge and input of members of local communities and industries from various professional and social backgrounds." The CSU researcher will meet with the interested public at 6pm on Thursday 12 December in the Commercial Hotel, 4 Bridge Street in Benalla.
