Woodend Landcare is working on an exciting project to find ideas to improve and protect Five Mile Creek for the benefit of the community and our environment. The Landcare group is asking other community groups, landholders and individuals about their visions for the future of this special place. They also want to know how the community can contribute to making these visions a reality.
“Five Mile Creek is an important and well used community asset” said Jo Clancy, Woodend Landcare Vice President. “It is utilised for cycling, walking, the park lands have important natural values and it’s a great backdrop to many community groups and services” she said.
“After many years of Landcare work along the creek we are now looking join forces with other local groups and landholders to enhance the waterway’s natural and recreational values.”
“This is the community’s creek and we are looking for ideas ranging from improved walking tracks to weed removal, picnic tables to water quality improvement” said Jo.
