Lake Cowal Conservation Centre

The Lake Cowal Conservation Centre (LCCC) is the result of a partnership between the West Wyalong High School, the Lake Cowal Foundation Ltd (LCF), Barrick Cowal Ltd and the Lachlan Catchment Management Authority (CMA). The LCCC was initiated in 2005 and, following the establishment of the facility and development and trialling of educational resources, was officially opened on the 2nd November 2007.

The LCCC logo was designed by the Yr 11 Design and Technology students from West Wyalong High school under the supervision of their teacher Col Clarke. The shape of the logo represents a seed, while the colours are representative of the vegetation, water, soils and the sun.

Lachlan Grazing Management Project Field day at the LCCC
Improving Soil & Profitability using Livestock


The Lake Cowal Foundation was proud to sponsor and host a field day at the LCCC on the 18th June 2009.
Landholders who participated in the project shared their experiences and learnings with other landowners. The project demonstrated how soil health, profitability and biodiversity could be improved through the application of high density short duration planned grazing with full pasture recovery before the next grazing event.
The presentations were recorded and sections of these presentations have been saved as audio files in mp3 format for anyone to download (you can then play them on your computer with your favourite audio player software).
