25 Year Landcare Anniversary Grant- Success x 2!
Macleay Landcare has recently been successful in securing $10,000 to assist landholders in the Collombatti area address wild dog and fox problems. Landcare and the North Coast Local Land Services Wild Dog Officer, Mick Thorman will collaborate on this 1 year project. If you'd like to participate or want to know more information please contact our office on 6562 2076.
In addition to this, MLN will be also delivering a sustainable grazing program in the valley over the year. This multiple session program will cover all aspects of pasture management to maximise stock, soil and plant health. In addition, this project will also trial a winter dung beetle release in the valley- keep tuned for the opportunity to participate.
NSW Recreational Fishing Trust Habitat Action Grant
MLN has succesfully applied for a habitat and erosion control project to be carried out on the Macleay River at Dondingalong. The $30,000 resnagging for erosion control and fish habitat will see the Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) donate $10,000 worth of tree stumps from the Pacific Highway Upgrade. The tree stumps will be used to build structures to protect a slumping and eroding river bank, and the site will be fenced and revegetated. The Soil Conservation Service will design the works and Macleay Landcare will oversee their construction. A genuinely exciting project for fish in the river!
Each October, the Habitat Action Grant is open to project such as these. If you or your fishing club have project ideas like this, please contact us.
