Project achievements;

  • 375ha of weed control
  • 71km of enhanced riparian connectivity


“I could not have achieved this work without the assistance of this grant”

“This has inspired me to do more fencing and native planting on my property”

“It would take us years to save enough money to implement these changes.”

“I am still finding new stock management benefits from having off-stream watering”

“Without the advice and support from Landcare and contractors the task of clearing the privet and lantana infestations would have been beyond our capabilities”
