Gardens for Wildlife

The flora and fauna of the Mornington Peninsula is unique. Your garden can help protect and nurture the beautiful flora and fauna of the Mornington Peninsula. 

Mornington Peninsula's free Gardens for Wildlife program is designed to encourage and support residents in creating a haven for local wildlife using local plants in their gardens.  These plants are available at the Briars Nursery.

The program is a partnership between the Shire and community members/groups that share the common goal of protecting and promoting our native flora and fauna.
