The 6th Creek Catchment Group
Next AGM may 3rd 2014...mark it down!
The 6th Creek Catchment Group consists of local Landcare Groups, landholders, community organisations and representatives from Government agencies with an interest in land management and protection of our local environment. We gratefully acknowledge the support from the Adelaide & Mt Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board, Forestry SA, National Parks and Wildlife SA and Adelaide Hills Council.
Since 1998 we have been fortunate to receive Natural Heritage Trust & National Action Plan (2002) funds to ensure strategic and coordinated action could be initiated to manage the catchment's valuable natural resources.
These funds (along with other contributions), have been used for extensive weed control, fencing & revegetation to conserve the remaining biodiversity and the running of workshops/courses to educate local landholders on sustainable land management practices. Working with more than 70 landholders, we have shown that the challenges, great though they are, can be met.

We now have some equipment you can borrow or hire incluing a spray unit, weed pullers and foxtraps. There is even a wildlife infared camera for hire to see what is eating your plants!
