Cross Property Planning project
Linking people, communities and native habitat in the mid Murrumbidgee catchment
Detailed information on the project outputs is available on the following pages:
Across the mid-Murrumbidgee region, native vegetation now exists predominantly in small, scattered remnants across multiple properties. The Cross Property Planning (CPP) project is working with land holders in the Kyeamba Valley, Tarcutta-Humula, and Junee-Illabo-Bethungra regions using a cross-property approach to protect and reconnect native vegetation across this fragmented landscape.
Working at the landscape scale has huge benefits for native flora and fauna, protecting and improving crucial habitat and biodiversity. It also has benefits for production, including weed and pest control, creation of habitat to attract beneficial insects, and improvements to soil and water quality.
The benefits of the project for land holders include:
- Working alongside others from your community to share ideas, see other management strategies in action, and build knowledge and expertise;
- Discussing alternative management options for your property with scientists, agency experts and other producers;
- Learning more about the native vegetation and wildlife in your area, and how can assist in protecting it; and
- Accessing support and funding to carry out work on your property to improve your production/conservation balance and to assist with increasing landscape connectivity.
Murrumbidgee Landcare has been able to implement this six-year project through funding from the Australian Government's Biodiversity Fund and the NSW Government's Environmental Trust. The project runs from July 2011 to June 2018.
