This projects aim is to create an environmental corridor along Dhurringile Road between the Midland Hwy and toolamba Rushworth Rd over a 5 year between 2006 and 2010.
This project ws instigated by the Dhurringiela nd District Landcare group along with local community groups and the City of Greater Shepparton.
Did you know that Dhurringile means Crounching Emu in the traditional language of the local Aboriginal people.
A large threat to the landscape along Dhurringile Rd is exotic plants. However there are still remaining stands of native Grey Box and Yellow Gum trees, Golden and Silver Wattles and wallaby and Spear grasses.
Removing weeds and replanting with local plant species will encourage fauna species to return, linking important habitats to the north abd south of Tatura, while enhancing the entrance to the town.
Landholders can play a vital role in the regeneration of our landscape by planting local species on their property. Working together wwe can beautify Tatura, and regenerate our unique environment.
