What a journey the creation of the brochure has been. 18 months from initial idea to fruitition. There are always stops and starts in the development of any project, and projects for community groups staffed with volunteers are amongst the most difficult to complete. One of our main concerns was that we were duplicating effort by the regional tourism people. But their brochure still seems to be ‘in the works’.
It is so good to see ours finished and out there.
We had a version of the brochure for a while. It was an A3 page, double sided and photocopied when the boss was away. It was a prototype of the now published document.
For real commitment to quality, we needed to have it printed in full colour and have lots of them the hand around. The funding for the project has come from the collection and sale of seeds.
You can download a copy from our website (although there are no bird images on that version - copyright permission was only granted for print) or you can request it from the Griffith Visitor’s Centre. Copies will also, soon, be available from Vistior’s Centres in Leeton, Narrandera and Hay.
But its not over yet. In the works are similar publications for Narrandera and Leeton.
We’ll write about them when they are ready.
