Tunglebung landowners John Taylor and Jane Lennon have recently completed an 18month environmental project funded through the Australian Governments Caring for Country initiative.
Obtained through a partnership with the West of the Range Landcare Inc (WORLI), John and Jane who manage a native forestry plantation and run cattle were worried about the weeds and creekbank damage occurring along their section of Bottle Creek.
Through the Caring for Country Grant the Taylors were able to erect fencing and gates along both sides of the creek to enable a managed approach to cattle access. The fence is a 3 strand barb wire fence with the bottom wire higher than normal to allow for ordinary flood events. They were also able to contract local bush regenerators to control the weeds and provide some training in identification and control methods.
