Monaro Landscape Connectivity project

Having received some good interest from people at the workshop in Bungendore on 1 December, particularly from around Carwoola - Captain's Flat - Hoskinstown, the Monaro Landscape Connectivity project team is now planning to hold the first MLC workshop in this area.

The details for the workshop are not yet finalised, but at this stage expect a 1-day workshop in the Captains Flat valley (ideally on the property of an interested landholder) in late April or early May. The workshop will help land managers to get a better understanding of native vegetation on their property, and also to look at managing it in the context of its connectivity to surrounding patches, through aerial photos and maps (which will be provided to all attendees) of native vegetation types across the landscape around their individual properties. There will also be sessions on Indigenous land management principles, and how people can begin to apply these on their property, if they are interested.

Following the workshop, interested land managers can receive advice and support from the three partners in the project (MLi, K2C and the CMA), and may also choose to apply for incentive funding through the project, to assist them to better manage native vegetation on their properties. The project team can also provide species lists for their property, and a Management Plan with recommendations to assist them in managing their native vegetation.

The Captains Flat workshop will be the first of six workshops to be held over the coming 18 months, at various locations across the Monaro. The exact location of workshops will be dependent on the EOIs received, but the aim is to ensure good coverage over the Monaro.
