    Shire of Kulin has identified two areas within its boundaries that would benefit from revegetation and protection; the Dudinin Golf Course and a 10 hectare block of bushland on the edge of town.

    Dudinin Golf Course has not been in use for 10 years and presents an opportunity for revegetation. Revegetation of the area will help to:

    • stabilise the soil
    • connect to and enhance existing remnant vegetation
    • create wildlife corridors
    • reduce salinity
    • create new wildlife habitats.

    30 hectares of locally native trees will be planted at the golf course as part of this project.

    A 10 hectare bush block on the edge of the Kulin town site will be fenced to protect local flora and fauna. The fence will prevent stock access and deter people from entering the area. This will help protect native understory species, encourage and protect new growth and create new wildlife habitats.

    Investment: $ 23 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Kulin
    Project duration: February 2013 - September 2013
    Location: Shire of Kulin
