Land Management Display

The following groups are working together in a collaborative effort to combine as a land management display/theme to present a combined stand that addresses land management concepts:

  • Port Phillip & Westernport Catchment Management Authority (in collaboration with Melbourne Water)
  • Ribbons of Green – Yarra Ranges Council
  • Agribusiness Yarra Valley
  • Yarra Ranges Landcare Network
  • Queensland Fruit Fly Awareness

Port Phillip & Westernport CMA (in partnership with Melbourne Water), Ribbons of Green, Agribusiness Yarra Valley, Land Care and Queensland Fruit Fly awareness, have all collaborated to present information to land holders in the one field days site.
