Grange Burn Restoration Project
The Grange Burn Restoration Project has been working across the banks of the Grange Burn for the past three years to restore and rehabilitate the creek and surrounding areas.
Activities of this project have focused on removing large sections of woody weeds, maintenance of existing vegetation, laying down mulch and the planting of native trees, shrubs and grasses. To date, over 21,300 plants have been established, 10.8 ha of woody weed control and over 12ha of mulching and maintenance work.
Check out the amazing community work planting all these trees on National Tree Day 2019:
A recent collaboration between Wannon Water, Southern Grampians Shire Council and Glenelg Hopkins CMA will benefit the Grange Burn with over $70,000 of funding for beautification and improvement works. The funded works will be undertaken over the next two years and aimed at further enhancing the banks of the Grange Burn improving environmental values and boosting recreational amenity for the local community.
