Looking forward, looking back: planning and action for the Oyster Harbour
Do you realise that what you do on your property has implications as far away as the Oyster Harbour?
Oyster Harbour Catchment Group are on the lookout for landholders (in area indicated by map below) to participate in property planning workshops to improve the condition and productivity of your property. We will be running a series of farm planning workshops.
The purpose of these workshops is to allow you to map the characteristics and issues of your individual property, gain a better understanding of managing these issues and plan any proposed works. Well planned activities can achieve maximum benefits to both productivity and the environment. For large scale issues to be tackled such as salinity, flooding, pollution, waterway protection and improved to improve biodiversity, works need to be planned on individual properties this in turn has a positive outcome on the catchment.
You will develop a personalized long-term plan for your property that will be based on an aerial map, and we will be provide you with contacts to implement activities where possible. Attendance to these workshops will also make you eligible to receive re-vegetation, weed control, fencing and feral animal control. (if your property fits the criteria). We are targeting the districts, Porongurup, Woogenellup and Kendenup.
