BBCAG seeking NRM Projects

Do you live in the Lake Bolac Catchment region? Are you interested in undertaking a Natural Resource Management project and would like to apply for funding assistance?

Beyond Bolac Catchment Action Group is seeking Expression of Interests (EOI) from land managers for natural resource management projects within the H11 H12 sub-catchment area. There are a number of funding opportunities which arise throughout the year which BBCAG can apply for. By proactively identifying project ideas, BBCAG can greatly increase the chances of developing successful projects and receiving funding when made available.  The next round of Victorian Landcare Grants will open June/July this year. Projects that include the following on-ground works are encouraged to submit an EOI

  • Revegetation,
  • Riparian and wetland restoration,
  • Remnant vegetation protection,
  • Erosion control,
  • Salinity management and
  • Invasive plants and animal management

BBCAG is also interested if you have any ideas for workshop, forums or training covering Natural Resource Management or Sustainable Farming Practices and any ideas for innovative farm trials for sustainable practices.

The Expression of Interest (EOI) process is a starting point to plan projects and develop partnerships. Please note that an EOI is not a funding application, but it is a simple form intended to capture your project ideas. Beyond Bolac CAG’s facilitator will review the ideas and decide what projects can be developed into full project plans to be submitted for funding as opportunities arise.  Please feel free to download and complete the EOI form BBCAG NRM EOI Form April 2017 or email beyondbolac@outlook.com with your project ideas.
