Landcare on the Mornington Peninsula
Landcare is a grass-roots organisation formed by people interested in protecting and restoring their local environment and contributing to sustainable landscapes. Run by local volunteers, Landcare involves more than 4000 groups across Australia working together to do something practical to protect Australia’s unique environment. Landcare activities include:
- Regionally coordinated environmental weed and pest animal control (e.g. foxes and rabbits)
- Connecting biolinks and habitat corridors
- Protecting habitat and waterways
- Field days and workshops
On the Mornington Peninsula, twelve Landcare groups make up the Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network. The network was established to assist local Landcare groups with large-scale projects, collaboration on cross-boundary projects and developing biolinks across the landscape.
Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink
Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink is a feature project of the Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network to connect two significant areas of remnant vegetation, Arthurs Seat State Park and Mornington Peninsula National Park (Greens Bush), through weeding and fencing of remnants and revegetation across 28 private properties, bringing to life the exciting vision of the MPLN and the community.
