Moorabool Catchment Landcare Group
We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Wadawurrung people and their Elders past, present and emerging.
We take inspiration from and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life in this region
Empowering Stewardship of our Land and Environment
At Moorabool Catchment Landcare Group we support landholders to sustainably manage their land for agricultural production and biodiversity.
We do this by running educational seminars, fauna monitoring programs, citizen scientist projects. As well as offering financial support for revegetation, pest plants and animals.
What can you get out of Landcare?
Free native trees & revegetation planning assistance
We give away 15,000 native plants every year to our members.
Increase your knowledge of sustainable land use, production and conservation while meeting like-minded people.
Access to grant funding to control weeds, pest animals and revegetation.
Citizen scientist projects
Contribute to important data gathering projects. Information gathered influences better management decisions for our landscape.
MCLG offers support to everyone. From broad acre farmers to urban residents.
Volunteers took water samples from 18 sites in the Moorabool Catchment. Using exciting new technology known as EnviroDNA or eDNA, these water samples were tested for Platypus DNA fragments to tell us the abundance and distribution of Platypus in the Moorabool River systems.
We support our members to plant a minimum of 15,000 plants each year. Opportunities for larger scale bio-link wildlife corridors are also a priority for the group.
The group now has over 20 high definition motion sensing monitoring cameras. We use these to conduct fauna monitoring programs twice a year. Cameras are also available to member to use on their own properties.
