Protect Your Patch
With almost 80% of the Blackwood Catchment being privately owned, one of the most valuable actions you can do is protect the environment on your patch, however big or small that may be.
For landholders, we have our Landcare works EOI Form that you can fill out with your wish list of activities to protect the environment on your property, such as fencing, revegetation, and weed and feral control. From this, the BBG team will actively apply for grants or subsidies to help you achieve these actions. Gaining a grant can take up to 18 months however, so please be patient!
Contact us to discuss your landcare ideas or for a copy of our Landcare Works Plan which is the first step to funding!

- Seedling lists for troublesome spots (waterlogging, saline-affected land)
- Steps to Successful Revegetation guide
- Fox and cat traps for hire from office
- Safe handling and use of 1080 bait accreditation courses

Welcome to the Blackwood Basin Group’s Biodiversity Info-Hub.
A place to check out sightings of local animals, plants, weeds and feral animals – submit your own sightings and to find useful resources on conserving and protecting our native flora and fauna.
Designed to be an interactive information hub, this area of our website will be enhanced with photos and details from people, communities and projects across the Blackwood river catchment.
Check out which creatures and plants are out and about in your region at our Sightings Gallery.
Visit the Resources section of the Info-Hub to find great information on feral animal and weed control, as well as tips on how to encourage native animals and regenerate your remnant bush.
