The aim of the project is to educate local land managers about the importance of biodiversity on farms for sustainable land management. The project will deliver workshops to train land managers to identify common native trees and shrubs in the local area, improve understanding of the importance of the three Threatened Ecological Communities (TEC’s) present in the Glen Innes area, and discuss considerations to the planning of revegetation projects tree on privately owned land with Threatened Ecological Communities as a priority.  

Glen Innes NSW – Creating habitat connections and enhancing biodiversity

$57,661
20MT-71
01/01/2015

This Project will address the lack of connectivity between isolated patches of remnant vegetation on privately managed land in the extensively cleared landscape of the Glen Innes district in northern NSW. Through the project, new areas of mixed native seedlings will be established to increase the area of native habitat available for wildlife. We will encourage planting species known to be present in the 2 Threatened Ecological Communities present locally - New England Peppermint grassy woodlands and Upland Wetlands of the New England Tablelands. Private land managers and community groups will be engaged to participate in the Project through Project publicity and by participating in planting activities on land they manage.
