Murrumbateman Village Box Gum Grassy Woodland

This crown reserve site is a remnant of native woodland and open grassland with a very high biodiversity value. The 4.1 ha site located in the centre of Murrumbateman village is an important refuge for endangered native plants and animals and is a wildlife corridor connecting with similar habitat areas. The critically endangered golden sun moth and superb parrot also are found on this site. White Box-Yellow Box-Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodland & Derived Native Grassland are Critically Endangered Ecological Communities (CEEC) listed under the NSW Biodiversity Management Act 2016 & Commonwealth Environment Protection & Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. Murrumbateman Landcare Group is licensed and funded for protecting and enhancing this land: • Australian Government’s Communities Environment Program – for an independent ecological survey, weed management, rubbish removal, restoration plantings and educational signage • NSW Government Crown Reserves Improvement Fund – for new fencing and safe access points. Yass Valley Council is supportive of the work Murrumbateman Landcare Group and the community is doing to preserve this habitat.
