Sale Launch of Durt'Yowan (Latrobe River): The Life Source
AboutThis free event includes a screening of the short documentary Durt'Youwan (Latrobe River) The Life Source followed by a Q&A session with experts working and advocating for the health of the River.
With some big changes on the horizon for the Latrobe River, or Durt’Yowan as Gunaikurnai people have called it for thousands of years, it’s important to know the story behind one of Gippsland’s longest rivers. Coined a “working river”, since colonisation the Latrobe has been straightened, its floodplain drained, trees cleared, and dams built all to make the river work for us. All is not lost; we are at the edge of a once in a lifetime opportunity to change the Latrobe from a working river into a river that works again. In this short film you will be shown a brief history of Durt’Yowan including the ups and downs of its life to date and be inspired to help the river in its new chapter.
This event is part of the Wellington Shire's Nakunbalook Seminar Series in partnership with the WGCMA.
