Bellarine and Geelong

Environmental Volunteering Calendar

Did you know there’s so much useful information on the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority's (CCMA) NRM Planning Portal which can help you make informed decisions about your property, be it a farm or a town block.

Information such as:

·       Soil type

·       Vegetation

·       Water flow and flooding

·       And even a fascinating 1945 map of the Bellarine, amongst much other information.

AND the portal allows you to print off a property report.

CCCMA's Chris Pitfield will join us to explain the CCMA NRM Portal and how to use it.

He’ll talk about a newly launched project particularly close to his heart, the Floristic Mapping Units, which allows a detailed understanding of the plants which would have originally grown on your property and across the Bellarine.

As President of Friends of Ocean Grove Nature Reserve Chris will also update us on this special place.

This session is part of our Victorian Landcare Grant 2024.  ALL WELCOME

Join Bellarine Bayside for a fun few hours learning about the local environment, indigenous plants and how they help reduce erosion of our coastline.
