Find out how to apply for a greenweb grant - open 1 August - 31 August
Council's Greenweb program identifies key areas of bushland habitat in the Shire and establishes corridors to connect them so both plants and animals can move easily between them. This helps to maintain healthy populations and diversity.
Greenweb operates on both public and private lands, however the main target is private property owners within the Greenweb network.
This program complements council's Bushcare program which focuses on bushland regeneration activities on public land in the Shire.
(N.B. Once on the Shire Maps page, you will need to change the map layer to 'Greenweb')
Contact our Greenweb officer who will inspect your property and provide a free garden consultation including:
- Identifying appropriate native plant species for the area.
- Suitable landscaping projects to encourage native fauna.
- Control of invasive weed species.
- Answering any other environmental or horticultural questions.
- Free native tube plants from the council's nursery and, in some instances, a second greenwaste bin and/or bush regeneration bags for weed collection may be available.
Greenweb participants will receive information relevant to the program via our Facebook page and on an individual basis as needed.
Other ideas include adding a few native plants to your garden, removing invasive weeds, installing a nest box or retaining and enhancing natural features in your yard such as logs or rocks to create better habitats for many types of native animals.
Schools are encouraged to participate in the Greenweb program and can play a vital role in the creation of wildlife corridors or by enhancing existing bushland in their grounds.
Educational talks about Greenweb matters as well as planting days and bush regeneration works are undertaken in schools throughout the Shire.
If you are a school within the Greenweb network and would you like to participate or get some tips on managing your bushland or wish to find out more call our Greenweb Officer on 9710 0463.
