Dalrymple Landcare

Southern X project funded

Southern Cross Landcare Group

has received funding from the Australian Government, Caring For Our Country programme. The Southern Cross application was one of four applications lodged. The others were unfortunately unsuccessful.

Australia wide groups lodged applications worth $38 million for the $10 million of funds available. The funding for the Southern Cross project will go toward upon reducing the Weeds of National Significance (WONS) infestations within the creek catchment.

The scope of this project is from “Jesmond” in the headwaters to “Barkla” downstream, “Centauri” to the West and Featherby Wall in the East. This project needs to be completed by 31 December 2014.

Contact is being made with landholders in the catchment.  Contact DLC co-ordinator if interested in being involved.
