Maam Reserve is a small wetland reserve with a number of significant flora populations, including the Basalt Leek Orchid (Prasophyllum viretrum) which is endemic to the Western Volcanic Plains. Nature Glenelg Trust is currently delivering a DEPI (Victorian Environmental Partnerships Program) project at Maam Reserve.
