Project ID: B0340010102G
Anticipated Start Date: 5/12/2016
This project is based on a partnership between Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare, National Trust of SA, Adelaide Hills Council/Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves, Friends of Mark Oliphant Conservation Park, and Deanery Community Landcare/Arbury Park Outdoor School and will be overseen by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges. Supported by these, the Team will work on public and private land to: improve remnant Bandicoot habitat and linkages between habitat areas through re-vegetation; raise community awareness; and to provide 3 demonstration sites. Works will complement ongoing community and volunteer habitat restoration and protection works on at least 8 reserves and 6 private properties.
Project ID: A0000011903G
Anticipated Start Date: 06/03/2017
Native vegetation in the Mid North of SA was quickly cleared following colonisation, to establish one of the Nation’s premium dryland agricultural districts. Collaborative Conservation Action Planning has identified a set of realistic biodiversity management targets that complement primary production and support ecosystem services. The restoration of woodland buffers and linkages for threatened species is considered a priority action for the significant habitat remnant associated with the Clare Valley. In partnership with local community groups, this project builds upon previous work to establish back-up populations of six EPBC listed flora species, and enhance habitat quality and connectivity for a suite of declining woodland birds.
Project ID: B0340013802G
Anticipated Start Date: 13/03/2017
This project will engage the local Aboriginal (Adnyamathanha) community in undertaking on-ground works vital to supporting threatened species recovery in the northern Flinders Ranges. The participants will assist with works that support threatened species monitoring, surveying and control of feral animals, and weed management. These will support native flora populations, including those that provide a food source for the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby and the Western Quoll. Other works will improve park visitor experiences and reduce risks to the public through maintenance of walking trails and installation of control barriers.
Project ID: E1619X710398
Anticipated Start Date: 29/05/2016
This project will help support and extend the Wirraparinga Loop Trail by constructing a new 300 metre section and upgrading and maintaining an existing 3000 metres of trail in Brownhill Creek Recreation Park.
The project will also restore habitat for the nationally threatened Southern Brown Bandicoot and rehabilitate Grey Box Grassy Woodland by removing environmental weeds and planting native species. In addition, targeted weed control and track maintenance will contribute to improving water quality in Brownhill Creek.
Participants will gain practical training and work experience, while working closely with a range of project partners involved in cultural heritage, education, environmental restoration and nature-based tourism.
Project ID: B0340019702G
Anticipated Start Date: 01/05/2017
The second project proposed is to follow on from the first proposed project for a small mobile team of Green Army participants to join with Natural Resources Northern and Yorke staff to continue to deliver a variety of on-ground conservation works across the Southern Yorke Peninsula Community Action Planning area. The Green Army will continue to support the momentum building towards a sustainable landscape scale conservation effort. The objectives are to provide the Green Army participants the opportunity to gain a wide exposure to conservation works being undertaken in the Southern Yorke Peninsula Community Action Planning area.
Project ID: B0340013402G
Anticipated Start Date: 24/04/2017
This project will continue to engage members of the local Indigenous community to undertake a diverse range of activities aimed at protecting and restoring nationally listed threatened species and Indigenous heritage values. The project will work in close partnership with other local organisations and will provide participants with valuable skills, knowledge, experience and contacts that will assist them to continue managing their traditional lands and waters into the future.
