Batesford Fyansford Stonehaven Landcare Group
Protecting and Restoring the Natural Environment
We are a small group of local volunteers who come together regularly to advocate and care for the natural environment.
“ Protecting the natural environment is increasingly important to us now and for future generations “
BFS Landcare supports efforts to protect the natural environment through submissions to government bodies and public presentations on environmental issues.
Recent activities include:
- A submission to the Victorian Legislative Council Environment and Planning Committee in response to the Inquiry into Ecosystem Decline in Victoria 2020.
- A talk by Felicity Spear titled ‘The Peri-urban’ given to the Geelong Field Naturalists Club Forum (Saturday 16 March 2019).
Today’s youth are the land carers of tomorrow
For ten years BFS Landcare has carried out nature conservation works together with Covenant College (Geelong).
Our vision is to bring the students to a greater understanding of the importance of protecting, preserving and enhancing the natural environment and to demonstrate how they can be part of the solution.
Honey Woodland Biodiversity-link Completed
BFS Landcare members completed the Honey Woodland Bio-link in September 2021. We hope this bio-link will extend the habitat of indigenous flora and fauna, and enable them to travel south cross-country to grassy woodlands near the Barwon River. This extension of their habitat and food supply should help ensure their survival.
