CCMA funding enabled the fencing and re-vegetatation of a 5km stretch of the Woady Yaloak River which included an area of significant grasslands. The fencing and planting of 6000 tubestock protected habitat for threatened species such as the growling grass frog and improves water quality in waterways and RAMSAR lakes by excluding stock and filtering runoff entering the river.
A Grasslands to Marshlands bus trip was held which attracted 18 landholders. The group visited RAMSAR lakes and riparian sites to improve their knowledge and awareness.
This project was funded by the CCMA's 2011/12 Corangamite Landcare Grant which provided $25,300 to undertake the fencing and re-vegetation works
