Join us to gain unique insights into present, past and future landscapes of South Gippsland and the people who shaped them. We will look at current land uses and the challenges of protecting and restoring biodiversity in a fragmented landscape. We will dip into thousands of years of human history and delve even further through geological time to when the land was part of Gondwana and flowering plants were just emerging. The local community, the Major Road Projects Authority, and a coastal housing development will all describe how they plan to protect and ultimately enhance the environment.
In consultation with public land managers, the Nerrena Tarwin Valley Landcare Group developed a vision and plan for the Black Spur Creek Wetland area. They identified its significant features and continue to liaise with stakeholders to encourage implementation of the plan. You will have the opportunity to learn about 115 million-year-old fossils, significant cultural artefacts belonging to traditional landowners, and the wetland and Tarwin River flora and fauna.
