Chinaman Creek Community Plan

Muckleford Landcare has lodged an application for a Community Landcare Grant to fund the first project to emerge from our Chinaman Creek Community Plan. The grants are part of the federal government Caring for Our Country scheme.

The funding would assist nine adjoining landowners in the lower section of the valley to undertake urgent weed control and revegetation work, investigate and plan a soil sustainability strategy and initiate a Waterwatch program. If the application is successful, work will take place in the latter part of this year and in 2014.

This project is the result of several meetings of landholders that grew out of the development of the Chinaman Creek Community Plan. Meetings have also discussed other potential projects in the creek catchment and these will be the subject of further community meetings in the near future.

Muckleford Catchment Landcare would like to thank the residents who contributed to the development of the plan and who attended the meetings.

We will now have wait until August to see if we have been successful.

Copies of our application can be requested from
