Connecting Country (Mount Alexander Region) Inc

Landscape restoration across the Mount Alexander Region


'Connecting Country (Mount Alexander Region) Inc' is an incorporated not-for-profit organization that is led by the local community and works with a range of other groups, organizations and government agencies to increase, enhance and restore biodiversity and landscape health across the Mount Alexander Shire and surrounds in central Victoria.

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')

Connecting Country's operations are based on four key elements:

  • On ground works to increase and enhance native vegetation and habitat through grazing change, revegetation, and pest plant and animal control.
  • Community engagement through education events, an active website and volunteer involvement.
  • The implementation of a long-term shire-wide annual monitoring program for birds, arboreal mammals and vegetation.
  • Providing support for our 30 local Landcare and Friend groups.

We are in the process of implementing our 10-year action plan for the 'feathered five' threatened woodland birds.
