2012 New England Landcare Adventure - Inverell

Description

As part of the 2012 New England Landcare Adventure in Inverell in March, there was a great presentation from a local initiative called "Backtrack" which is a not for profit organisation based in Armidale that runs programs for local indigenous boys to help them re-connect with their education and training. This was a great story of helping them with the skills to find a future in the rural sector and was one of the highlights for all those attending the field trips. One program they run which is not only fun(but has a number of reasons) is the "Paws Up Program" where the boys team up with a dog for high jump competitions where they both learn to raise the bar.
