Connecting Country Works Crew

Connecting Country 2014 Works Crew

This multi-year program works with private landholders to create and enhance wildlife habitat connections between the large blocks of crown land forest that occur through the Mount Alexander Shire and immediate surrounds. Connecting Country has established its own on-ground works crew to help landholders undertake management activities on their properties, such as pest animal and plant control, protective fencing and supplementary plantings. Other aspects of the program include community talks and field day events, flora and fauna monitoring and community planting days.
