Following a successful submission involving Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) and Nillumbik Shire’s Environmental Planning staff, Bendigo Bank has funded approximately 100 days of volunteer work in the Shires of Nillumbik and Yarra Ranges.
This work is to help bushfire-affected property owners to rehabilitate their land by undertaking various works. This could include revegetation with indigenous plants, weeding, laying logs and other material for erosion control, fencing out areas of high conservation value from stock and removal of any remaining fencing on properties that is posing a threat to wildlife or harbouring pest animals and plants.
Many property owners in Nillumbik will already received assistance from CVA in partnership with staff from Environmental Planning. CVA volunteers are trained, fully insured and have a supervisor at all times.
If you would like some help of this type, or you require assistance with property management planning, please call Tim O’Donnell on 9433 3207 or Sue Aldred on 9433 3201.
