Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

A new wildlife freeway – Treeway – in Muckleford

Posted on 8 December, 2009 by Connecting Country

An innovative biolink project in Creasys Road, Muckleford was celebrated on Saturday by members of the Muckleford Catchment Landcare Group.  The project involves the planting of some 6300 trees and bushes in a 2.3 ha strip along Creasys Road and Turners Lane, together with a linking  section to Chinamans Creek.

Planting was undertaken by members of Muckleford Landcare in September and October after extensive site preparation, including collapsing of rabbit warrens and deep ripping by Yeomans plow.  The majority of planting has been undertaken on private land which has now been fenced off to protect the new vegetation from grazing and pests.  Three landholders along Creasys Road agreed to set aside portions of their land for this project.

Further information about the activities of the Muckleford Catchment Landcare Group can be found at or by contacting the Secretary Paul Hampton, on 5474 2189.
