landcare gets planning

A stormy day welcomed members of the Johns Hill Landcare group to their planning day today. So rather than a walk through Pepi's land for inspiration, members gathered round the open fire at the Emerald Scout hall to talk about the future. I was pleased to be invited along and find out about some of their successes.

Before and after photos showed some great results for our natural environment, with many areas weeded and revegetated. The in depth study of the Puffing Billy corridor was a great piece of work and it will be extremely valuable to help inform where resources should be best put to improve the corridor.

Me and the Johns Hill Landcare Group, celebrating some of their successes and working on a plan for the future.

The purpose of the day was for the group to plan the where to from here for the next 3 years. The John's Hill Landcare group focuses mainly on Menzies Creek catchment and extends right through to Gembrook. Their vision is “working with the community to reconnect the bush between the Dandenong Ranges National Park and the Bunyip State Forest” with their main focus dealing with better protection and restoration of remnant bushland, and “connecting” and “creating” areas of bushland on both private and public land.

It was great to come along and I look forward to seeing more of their successes in the future.
