Murrumbateman Village Box Gum Grassy Woodland

In October 2019, a new community project was formed with the aim of protecting and enhancing a 4.4ha plot of crown reserve land in the centre of Murrumbateman village. The land contains a critically endangered ecological community of box gum woodland and derived native grassland. It is a rich habitat for the critically endangered golden sun moth and superb parrot. In 2019, MLG obtained a Community Environment Project Funding grant to rehabilitate the plot. In 2021, MLG received a Crown Reserves Improvement Fund grant for fencing and access points. Work done to date (October 2021) includes an environmental survey, weed management, rubbish removal, fencing and signage.
