The SRCMN manages several community projects and is always looking to develop more. Past projects can be found on the SRCMN’s archived site. Current projects include:
Wetlands and woodlands project – partnership project with the GBCMA
New & part-time landholder information days
Every year dozens of properties change hands in the SRCMN area, many by landholders that are new to the district. The SRCMN holds regular half-day events to assist all landholders, particularly new landholders, in coming to grips with land management and nature conservation issues.
In 2016 the SRCMN partnered with Trust for Nature to search for the endangered Striped Legless Lizard in north-east Victoria (roughly Benalla, Dookie, Wangaratta districts).
This project will harness the energy, experience and knowledge of volunteers and local experts in an intensive ‘snap-shot’ survey of important biodiversity assets of the Strathbogie State Forest, including – old-growth trees and their hollow-dependent fauna (Powerful Owl, Greater Glider, Yellow-bellied Glider) and cryptic ground-dwelling mammals (Long-nosed Bandicoot, Spot-tailed Quoll, Brush-tailed Phascogale).
Strathbogie forest community campaign
This project is being run by the Strathbogie community, as a sub-committee of the SRCMN. For more information go to Our Strathbogie Forest.
