Landscape restoration across the Mount Alexander Region

Help Connecting Country Thrive in 2020!

Thank you for supporting our shared vision for landscape restoration across the Mount Alexander region of central Victoria. 

You can be assured that any financial support from you will be well spent, with 100% invested into our core work of supporting and implementing landscape restoration in our local area.

We run a lean operation and our small team of part-time staff attracts voluntary support that ensures every dollar goes a long way.

We know that with the combination of our track record of ten years of successful landscape restoration, great plans for the future, and lots of persistence, we can secure funding for projects from governments and grant makers. With your support, 2020 will see us continue to help landholders with on-ground actions, prepare for climate change, maintain our commitment to long-term monitoring, and deliver events that inform, educate and inspire. See our brand-new brochure for more on what we’re doing – click here.

Over the past ten years we have:

  • Restored over 9,500 ha of habitat across the Mount Alexander region, which equates to around 6% of the shire.
  • Delivered more than 200 successful community education events.
  • Installed more than 450 nestboxes for the threatened Brush-tailed Phascogale
  • Maintained a network of 50 long-term bird monitoring sites
  • Secured funding to deliver more than 50 landscape restoration projects.
  • Supported a thriving network of over 30 Landcare and Friends groups.

We should all be proud of what we’ve achieved. However, there’s much more to do.

Our vision is 'for the people of the Mount Alexander Region to be proud of the beautiful, productive, healthy and diverse landscapes, habitats, forests, waterways, flora and fauna that we have supported and created in our region' - from the 'Connecting Country Strategic Plan 2014-2024.
