Natural Envrionment Working Group (NERWG)

Natural Environment Working Group is nearing the end of its Bushfire Recovery funding and we are looking to the future.  The Nillumbik Shire Council Land Management team, together with Strathewen Landcare and SCRA will continue to deliver support to residents via the CERAP project funds and the 2012 VBAF Environment Recovery Grant.

The inter-agency co-operation that has been the strength of NERWG will be carried forward to the Nillumbik Landcare Network that includes all Landcare groups in the Shire. If you would like to know more contact email
