Murrumbateman Bush Cemetery enhancement

The Murrumbateman Bush Cemetery is a multi-use community space primarily for burials and memorials. It also has conservation areas containing a critically endangered ecological community of White Box-Yellow Box-Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodland and Derived Native Grassland. The Cemetery has pathways for walking and cycling and contains Council water reservoirs. It is managed by Yass Valley Council with in-kind assistance from community groups. During 2019 to 2021, Murrumbateman Landcare Group undertook an enhancement project to do an ecological survey of the conservation areas, install new informative signage, plant tube-stock native species and re-seed specific areas with native grass seed. The project will inform a new management plan to update the current interim plan of 2006. The project was funded by a Yass Valley Council Community Grant and Murrumbateman Progress Association, with in-kind contributions from MLG. Location: South Street Murrumbateman NSW.
