Landcare in towns

WHAT
Work with Local Governments to support town based efforts for sustainability, including improving recycling, feral cat management, habitat creation in home gardens, habitat creation in parks, street scapes and community gardens.

WHY
• Changing population structure in Wheatbelt means that while farming enterprises are getting larger there are tree changers coming into the Avon Arc that wish to get involved
• Local Government has been a long-time supporter and participant of NRM, this is an opportunity for Wheatbelt NRM to enhance the work that Local Governments are already doing (not giving them more work!)
• Strong community message in Local Governments strategic community plans about town amenity as an environmental priority
• Overall vision in the Regional Strategy is about “sense of place”

WHY IT IS GREAT
Local Government is already required to do street-scaping, feral cat management, waste management etc. It provides opportunity for us to work with them to enhance their efforts (and join it up across the region) and will improve the outcome for the same level of effort.

Any efforts in back yards will have a better chance of receiving on-going management. It is a numbers game, in driving political support for Landcare as well as expanding the volunteer base.

Absolutely, too much of our natural habitats are continuing to be lost for our animals and we want to survive on this earth we have to start making changes in every corner of our beautiful boodja.
Every one must do their share of caring for our land and animals.

I would like to see a tip shop at the Northam recycling centre. The other day I threw away my old oven, nothing was wrong with it, i just upgraded. I took it to the tip, thinking there was a tip shop or scrap metal point at the recycling centre, but there wasnt and i was told to drop it off at the land fill spot. I just think if Northam has something like Toodyay or Cunderdin there wouldnt be as much land fill and people could acquire furniture or electronic good for a cheap price, instead of these item just being crushed into the earth.
