Connecting Country is a unique community operated organisation working across the Mount Alexander Shire and surrounds. We obtain funding to improve local skills and restore landscapes for a healthy, resilient and productive natural environment.
Connecting Country work with a wide range of land users to support and bring skills and funds to local communities for landscape improvement, dedicated to achieving specific investor goals in the areas of:
Grants for on-ground projects relating to woodland restoration. (Groups or individuals can apply. Excludes roadsides)
Education and engagement to improve landscape management
Monitoring change from our funded projects (vegetation, birds and the threatened Tuan species)
We seek further funds to contribute to additional local needs. Please contact us if you would like to be a project partner or know of grants which can benefit this region.
Connecting Country is a project which aims to collect and collate knowledge and information about the natural landscape in the Mount Alexander region.
Specifically this project will inform and encourage new ways for this community to live compatibly within that landscape.
Underpinning the research is the belief that the social and built community of the future is co-dependent on the survival of a diverse and resilient natural landscape.
