Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink

 

The MPLN’s “Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink” is 3.5 year project funded by the State Government’s “Our Catchments our Communities” (OCOC) initiative through the Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority (PPWCMA).

This project will connect two significant areas of remnant vegetation, Arthurs Seat and Mornington Peninsula National Park (Greens Bush) through weeding and fencing of remnants and revegetation across around 20 private properties, bringing to life the exciting vision of the MPLN and the community. In addition to improving habitat and opportunities for movement across the landscape, native fauna will benefit from community pest control and nestbox installation.

Partner organisations include Mornington Peninsula Shire, Birdlife Australia (Morn Pen branch), Parks Victoria, Chisholm Tafe, Homesglen Tafe, Bunurong Land Council and local schools and cub/scout groups.

 

We are grateful to the Victorian State Government and PPWCMA for providing $300,000 through the Victorian Government’s Our Catchments, Our Communities initiative.
