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 and Community Action Grants as well as philanthropic donations to ensure strategic and coordinated action could be initiated to manage the catchment and valuable natural resources of Sixth Creek’s riparian zones.
These funds have been used for extensive rehabilitation, weed control and revegetation to conserve the remaining biodiversity of the Sixth Creek. Working with more local communities and landholders, we have shown that the challenges, great though they are, can be met.
The next AGM will be held on 25th November 2017
at 140 Merchants Road, Basket Range.
Please join the Committee and Friends of Merchants Road and Lower Sixth Creek for the meeting followed by lunch and a walk to the project site which was recognised with a nomination in the Fairfax Landcare Community Awards.
