Connecting Landscapes Project – Expressions of interest

Connecting Landscapes Project

The Woolshed Thurgoona Landcare Group (WTLG) are pleased to announce we have recently secured a funding grant of just over $55,000 from AlburyCity, to undertake on-ground revegetation works on privately owned E3 (Environmental Management) land, which falls within Woolshed Thurgoona Landcare’s boundary.

The Woolshed Thurgoona Landcare Group (WTLG) have actively been revegetating critically endangered Grassy Box Gum Woodland across the Thurgoona, Wirlinga and Table Top areas for more than 14 years. The group’s focus has been on protecting and enhancing this woodland, which is home to many threatened species including various woodland birds, the iconic Squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) and in more recent years the Sloane’s Froglet (Crinia sloanei).

The focus of the Landcare group has been rehabilitating privately owned land, particularly along creek lines and around waterways creating habitat linkages for wildlife to freely move along. This project will enable the group to continue to build upon previous works, with funding being allocated towards fencing to restrict stock and revegetation works through a combination of either tube stock planting and/or direct seeding.

We are after expressions of interest from landholders with appropriate land who want to be involved. See attached map to ensure your property falls within the required area. Turquoise denotes E3 zoned land. Thick orange line marks the WT Landcare boundary.
