An integrated approach to community land management

Hosted by Matt Crawley, Program Manager, Bellarine Catchment Network

Date: Thursday, 25 June 2020

Time: 2pm (AEST)

Bellarine Catchment Network is situated on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, and has been operating under an integrated catchment management structure for more than 20 years. The BCN team works with 30 community groups and organisations from Coastcare to Landcare groups, bush regeneration groups, wetlands preservation, threatened species protection, and everything in between.

In our upcoming webinar, BCN Program Manager, Matt Crawley will speak about the collaborative approach that underpins the organisation’s work, and the outcomes it has helped achieve. He will discuss how the integrated approach makes the most of limited resources, fosters community partnership and cohesion, and achieves positive cross-boundary environmental outcomes and landscape scale change.
