Puffing Billy Green Tracks Project


Project Summary...

Implementation stage of a Five Year Trackside Management Plan.

The overriding outcome of the management plan is to protect those areas of greater ecological significance while developing operational practices to complement these areas.

Then working towards areas of lower ecological significance with a much longer restoration duration and integrating operational practices to assist in its recovery.

First stage funding is through Communities for Nature thanks to the Victorian Government.

First stage addresses several areas;
