In 2016 SLCMA delivered the third year and final year of the Building Resilience of Natural Areas and Sustainable
Land Management on Small Properties Project within the Mackay Whitsunday Region. The project was delivered in partnership with the Central Queensland Coast Landcare Network focusing on building resilience within the landscape, focusing on peri-urban (rural) hotspots throughout the Sarina, Mackay and Whitsunday Regions. The project provided support and advice to landholders to make practical changes in land management practices that will help improve the health and resilience of their properties and the surrounding environment. Participating landholders received a free property visit, personalised action plan, access to resources, technical advice and 40 free native plants for rehabilitation activities. By the end of June 2016 the project has supported 150 landholders with properties (ranging in size between 2 and 50 acres) and provided 6 landholder training days across the region.
The Building Resilience of Natural Areas and Sustainable Land Management on Small Properties within the Mackay Whitsunday Region is funded by the Queensland Government’s Everyone’s Environment Grants.
