Event description

These site visits to the Western Grassland Reserve and online forums are a collaboration between the Melbourne Strategic Assessment team at DELWP and the Grassy Plains Network.

Site visit 2: Managing grasslands

Join this tour with grassland experts and visit recoverable grassland blocks in the southern section of the Western Grassland Reserve.

  • Find out how we can begin to restore these recoverable blocks and discuss the management practices needed to achieve this goal
  • Take a look at a weed-dominated block to consider what management and restoration is feasible
  • Visit grassland blocks which have been managed for several years by Parks Victoria
  • Finish at Little River Mechanics Institute Hall for a light lunch. Join a discussion about management challenges and how we can work together to achieve good conservation outcomes.
