Next Muckleford Landcare Workshop

You may have lots of apps on your smart phone or or tablet, but do you know how to use them? Do you know how to submit information or records to national databases and help with citizen science? Then come along to the Bird and Frog App Workshop.

15th July 2018, at 1.30pm

Thanks to Muckleford Landcare member Eleanor who is running the workshop and for Eleanor and Albi for hosting the event at their place. It is best to car share to their property, so I will give you the address when you RSVP. There is no cost and a small afternoon tea will be provided.

You will need to come along with a smart device or tablet with the following apps downloaded: Birdata, and Frog ID. Another good app is the Vic Field Guide from Museum Victoria.

All welcome, you can RSVP by emailing the Secretary, Beth Mellick, or sending a text to 0431219980.


Bassett Creek Project

The Loddon Prison crew have treated the weeds all the way from Golf Links Road up the creek into the new project area (map attached). Bassett Creek Map

During the weed spraying, the prisoners also removed old tyres from the creek. Landholders then dragged them through their properties and left on the side of the road for us to collect and dispose of.

Barbed wire fence removal project

Expressions of interest are being sought by Muckleford Catchment Landcare Group for anyone who wants to remove their external barbed wire fences.

Barbed wire fencing is dangerous for native fauna. Although we don’t have funding to replace the barbed wire with more wildlife friendly fencing, we can help you take down your old fences, especially for those landholders who don’t have stock.

Please click here to contact the Muckleford Catchment Secretary, Beth Mellick, to leave your details.

Muckleford Landcare Feb Committee Meeting Minutes

Here are the minutes from the Committee’s recent meeting. As mentioned in the minutes, on Sunday, Dave, Chris, Nev and Beth did a walk on Bassett Creek to ground-truth our upcoming project. We will now start talking to landholders about restoration activities on the Stage 2 section of the creek, as supported by the North Central CMA. Stay tuned for more news on this project, as well as the timetable for our upcoming community education events.  MCLG minutes Feb 2018
