Jagera Daran Cultural Heritage


Welcome to the July 2015 edition
of the Aboriginal Natural Resource
Management newsletter.
This edition looks at some successful
community projects and upcoming
events to take place this year, as well
as current funding opportunities.
I will be taking leave over the next
month from July 8 - August 12.

In May this year, Jagera Daran

installed a cultural heritage display at
the Brookfield District Museum.
With support from the Whats your
nature? initiative, Jagera Daran have
created a permanent display of
artefacts at the museum important
for creating awareness and cultural
learning in the broader community.

Much of the cultural material on

display at the Brookfield museum
was hand made by Mr James Bonner
who used traditional techniques
and tools. Jagera Darans cultural
heritage display has encouraged
understanding and appreciation of
the use of and cultural significance of
nature to Aboriginal people.
Whats your nature? is an initiative
delivered through a joint partnership
of the organisations listed below,
through funding from the Australian
