Supporting private land

Supporting private land

CEC shares member information such as Trust for Nature Friends Group projects at Harbury.

The CEC strongly supports the private land conservation done by many local landholders. We share information regarding the work that is done by Trust for Nature, Melbourne Water, the Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority, The Western Port Biosphere Reserve, Port Phillip and Westernport Land Care Network. These organisations do wonderful work with private land holders.

We are also involved with the Cannibal Creek Landcare project in conjunction with Friends of Mt Cannibal, Cannibal Creek Landcare Group, Bunyip Landcare Group and Cardinia Shire Council. The project focuses on weed and pest animal control, across both public and private land in the area.

Did you know that there are more Trust for Nature Conservation Covenanters preserving private land, in perpetuity, within Cardinia Shire than any other municipality! This is celebrated at an annual Trust for Nature gathering on a local land holders property.
