Lal Lal Catchment Landcare
Lal Lal Catchment Landcare Group mainly works on weed control on local reserves and roadsides to prevent weed invasion on private land from public areas. The Group is responsible for six reserves and the main weed problems include gorse and blackberries, with patches of English broom and Spanish Heath. The group is currently working on the Moorabool Blackberry Action Group with the Landcare Network and a great range of public land managers and stakeholders.
A corridor of appropriate native trees from Mt Buninyong to Mt Warrenheip would greatly assist koalas to migrate through the region. The Group has joined with the Upper Williamsons Creek Landcare Group to create the 'Two Mountains Koala Trail'. At present the group is seeking interest from landholders who would be prepared to plant some trees as koala feed and refuge.
We have also assisted the Landcare Network deliver a number of projects on gorse control, funded by the Victorian Gorse Task Force.
We are excited to be working with the Ballarat Region Tree Growers to develop a slab hut made from timber resources harvested from their biorich plantations and built at the Imlal biorich plantation site. See below for more.
