Funding available in Gwydir wetlands, brigalow and regent honeyeater habitat

Can you hear the frogs calling with the new spring weather? Do you live upstream or near the Gwydir wetlands, have brigalow woodland in and around your property, or are in areas known for regent honeyeaters, then the Local Land Services Natural Resource Management team want to talk to you!

With funding through the National Landcare Program, Local Land Services has been supporting landholders in these areas since 2014 and are on the lookout to work with landholders to implement new projects on farms.

Funding is currently available to assist landholders in these areas in some of the following:

  • Improve the health of brigalow woodland vegetation communities through weed control, revegetation and grazing management
  • Reduce threats to Gwydir wetlands through improving groundcover, grazing management and weed control
  • Improve habitat for regent honeyeaters through revegetation, grazing management and improving woodland bird habitat.

Activities such as weed control, fencing, installation of off-stream water points and revegetation have all previously been funded under these programs. Local Land Services provides up to 50% of the cost of the projects, with landholders contributing 50% (including in-kind contributions).

This project is supported by North West Local Land Services, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
