Roadside Awareness – Mapping Project

In the next few days we intend to hand deliver a brochure outlining land holder responsibilities for roadside management. We will be asking all Muckleford residents to walk their immediate roadside and report the incidence of weeds and native vegetation.


On Saturday 20 Aprilwe encourage everyone to call in at the Muckleford Community Centre between 11am and 2pm and register their findings. These will recorded on a map and Muckleford Catchment Landcare will use the information to plan and work with landholders to implement better roadside management.

Everyone who drops in will be welcome to have a cuppa and will be eligible to go in a draw to win one of three terrific prizes: a superb, framed photo of the Walmer Nature Reserve by Bronwyn Silver, a Hills 12 litre Knapsack Sprayer from Machinery and Irrigation Supplies of Elizabeth St, Castlemaine or a copy of Wildlife of the Box-Ironbark Country by Chris Tzaros.

You should receive a copy of our brochure in the next week. If you don’t please contact us at

If you would like to help us by delivering the brochure to your immediate neighbours please also contact us at the above address. Muckleford Landcare covers an extensive area and the task of delivering to all is quite a big task.

This project has been made possible with a grant from the Mount Alexander Council.
