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.

Kinross Farm Landcare Project

With funding provided by CSL the UGLN has been able to implement a great environmental project at Kinross Farm in Kinglake West.
With the support and assistance of Kinross Farm we have installed stock exclusion fencing around over 5ha of remnant vegetation, carried out weed control and planted over 1200 trees and shrubs.

Recent fauna surveys carried out show the site provides very important habitat for wildlife. See photos taken by remote sensor cameras at the site below.
Evidence of a Long-nosed Bandicoot adjacent to the site also further supports this and other nearby initiatives to protect and enhance native vegetation and waterways.
