Landcare groups in North East Victoria will receive over $220,000 for environmental action through the Victorian Landcare Grants. The Victorian Landcare Grants Program supports Landcare and related community groups to undertake projects to protect and restore the Victorian Landscape. Funding for these Grants is provided by the Victorian Government as a way of supporting the community to actively participate in the integrated management and protection of natural resources.
The North East CMA welcomes the appointment of new Board members. The CMA Board will continue to play a key role in helping people to connect, plan for and manage responses to challenges like climate change and population growth, intensifying land use, and natural disasters such as bushfires and floods. This new Board comprises new and re-appointed members but we also acknowledge our outgoing Board members for their service to the catchment management sector and community.

National Water Week 2015
It's National Water Week and we are celebrating the dedication and hard work of Waterwatch volunteers in our region and the contribution they make to our area.
National Water Week is designed to assist the community to understand and take action to protect and conserve our precious water resources and habitats and the Waterwatch program is a great way to make this happen. Not only does Waterwatch provide opportunities for communities to work together but it is also a great way to learn more about the health of local waterways.
