About the Project
This three year initiative has involved 12 partner groups restoring wetlands on Gippsland’s Red Gum Plains.
GA developed targeted partnerships with landholders and commenced revegetation, weed, pest animal and erosion control.
The project has included a strong cultural and community element.
Together, the partnering agencies, landholders, students and the broader community are not only gaining a greater appreciation, but are an active part of the solution to manage the wetlands of the Red Gum Plains where they live. Working together, wetlands on the Red Gum Plains can be enjoyed for many generations to come.
