The priority area for the Sustainable Practices in the Western Burnett project has been extended to include the subcatchment of Reid’s Creek.
The Sustainable Practices in the Western Burnett project is aimed at working with graziers and grain growers in priority areas of the inland Burnett to improve management practices and increase landscape scale conservation.
The grazing component of the Sustainable Practices project is providing graziers located in the priority sub-catchments of Lower Burnett River and Reid’s Creek (see map) the opportunity to improve sustainable land management practices and increase landscape scale conservation by providing property planning assistance and funding for eligible activities on your property.
If you are located in these priority subcatchments and are interested in developing a Property Management Plan for your property, click here for an Expression of Interest form. Forms are due back by 30 June 2011. Click here for more information!
The Sustainable Practices project is an initiative of the Burnett Mary Regional Group, funded by the Australian Government through the Caring for Our Country program and is coordinated by the Burnett Catchment Care Association in the Burnett.
