What is Landcare Fire Recovery?

Upper Goulburn Landcare Network
Since the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of Feb 2009, the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network has been working with landholders and local communities in the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shires to rebuild and rehabilitate the local environment on private property.
This blog presents some of the stories.
To find out more about our program or to volunteer with one of our projects contact Landcare Coordinator Chris Cobern on 5736 0104.

Scouts Kinglake West Nest Box Project

The Kinglake Scouts recently checked the Rotary built nest boxes that they installed at a property on the King Parrot Creek in November 2009. Using the UGLN nest box inspection camera the Scouts checked nine nest boxes. One had what appeared to be a Sugar Glider nest but the rest were uninhabited. The Scouts GPS'd the locations of each box and recorded their observations on a data sheet. This work goes towards their World Conservation award and helps UGLN with our ongoing fauna monitoring in the fire affected areas.
