The Prospect Hill Bushland Group is a collective of private landowners who work cooperatively to protect and maintain remnant bushland in the Bull Creek Range between Prospect Hill and McHargs Creek on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
Our key aim is to protect and improve the condition of the bushland across all participating properties to enable native plant and animal populations to persist and thrive in the broader landscape.
Our key focus is to manage the threats to biodiversity across all participating properties to enable native plant and animal populations to persist and thrive in the broader landscape
We recognise that:
- the removal or control of threats (i.e. pests, weeds, diseases) will help to restore natural ecological processes, and in turn, the health of the bushland
- the long term persistence and survival of many native species requires the coordinated effort of landowners at a landscape or multi-property scale
- these efforts contribute to the objectives of State and regional conservation programs such as Conserving Nature 2012–2020, the State NRM Plan, and the Natural Resources Management Plan for the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin.– through this conservation effort we provide valuable ecosystem services to the broader community such as soil and watershed protection, and carbon sequestration.
This website is intended as an information, communication and reference resource for the group and those interested in grass roots biodiversity programs.
