Four farmers in the Wattle Creek Catchment in the Kojonup Shire area undertook conservation work to improve salt-affected land and remnant or creekline vegetation to improve catchment health and preserve the biodiversity of the area.
The farmers, many of whom have undertaken conservation work in the past, fenced remnant stands of vegetation or low-lying salt-affected creeklines to exclude stock and allow natural regeneration, as well as revegetating where necessary with local native seedlings. Works were completed in April 2014.
“By providing assistance and support to interested landholders, this project encourages conservation of our natural resources and fosters community ownership of catchment health management” said Sara Dulex, BBG Officer.
The BBG held a Thankyou Sundowner in July 2014 to acknowledge all the hard work that has been undertaken by participating farmers. If you are interested in doing landcare works on your property, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your ideas and funding opportunities.
