    12108: Maximising environmental value of remnant native vegetation: a blueprint for landholders

    Remnant bushland on private property throughout the Warren River catchment will be assessed to help inform the future management of bushland in the region.
    Remnant bushland on private property throughout the Warren River catchment will be assessed to help inform the future management of bushland in the region.

    The Warren River has had significant issues with salinity due to land clearing. In the 1970s clearing bans were imposed on large tracts of privately owned native vegetation. Some of that land has degraded through grazing, but the extent of the degradation is unknown.

    This project aims to:

    • assess the condition of remnant vegetation
    • train landholders to assess vegetation on their own properties
    • survey landholders on their views about managing remnant vegetation.

    Information collected will help inform future management plans including the economic potential of incentive plans for caring for remnant vegetation.

    A 'bush picnic' will be held as part of the project to encourage appreciation of remnant vegetation in the local community.

    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Warren Catchments Council Inc
    Project duration: January 2013 - June 2014
    Location: Warren River catchment

    Project partners

    Australian Forest Growers; Department of Water; Forest Products Commission; local landholders; Shire of Manjimup
