Nature Glenelg Trust’s Green Swamp Restoration Reserve is situated in the southern Grampians region near Glenthompson and Dunkeld, a short distance to the east of our wetland reserve at Walker Swamp.
Green Swamp had been progressively drained in an attempt to open up the the land for more intensive agricultural land use, but thanks to the support of the previous owners, Warrembool Pastoral Co., Nature Glenelg Trust (NGT) was able to restore the original sill level of the wetland in 2014.
With the spectacular process of wetland recovery that has occurred since, and to protect these outcomes permanently, Green Swamp became a NGT Restoration Reserve, and was formally announced to the public ahead of World Wetlands Day in February 2020.
Tax-deductible donations to the NGT Foundation, to support the future management of NGT’s Reserves, can be made on-line, by emailing or by calling the NGT regional office on 08 8797 8596.
