Community Wetland Restoration Trials

NGT is actively looking for ways to help boost the profile, membership base and wider community interest in the region’s existing environmental community groups. Why? Well, the answer is simple. Working at the local scale, these groups are the heart and soul of environmental action in our region and NGT is here to support these groups by giving them meaningful opportunities to also be part of new, science based, on-ground projects.

Led by Nelson Coastcare, volunteers from community groups from everywhere between Portland and Mount Gambier helped construct the first phase restoration trial structure at Long Swamp, Discovery Bay Coastal Park.

So what does this approach look like?

Our partnership projects with the Hamilton Field Naturalists Club and Nelson Coastcare have led to wetland restoration trials in the Grampians National Park (plus two adjacent sites – Walker Swamp and Brady Swamp) and Discovery Bay Coastal Park respectively.

If your group has a project that you need a hand getting underway, or if you are an individual or group that would like to help out during our next sandbagging event – we’d love to hear from you!

Please contact either Lachlan Farrington on 0401 208 717 or by email, or Mark Bachmann on 0421 97 8181 or by email.
