Bellarine Catchment Network
Community driven projects to protect and enhance the environmental values of the Bellarine
The Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) comprises representatives from key catchment and coastal organisations (both government and non-government) with an integrated catchment management focus. This includes environment groups, 'Friends Of', Landmanagers, Landcare and Coastcare groups. BCN employees seven officers to implement the projects of the committee.
The Bellarine Catchment Network region will work towards healthy, well connected and resilient wetlands, waterways and native vegetation ecosystems; sustainable agricultural and land management practices; and a community which is engaged and involved in protecting and managing the natural environment.
The purposes of the Association are to work on behalf of its members towards:
- Healthy, well-connected and resilient wetlands, waterways and native vegetation ecosystems;
- Sustainable agricultural and land management practices;
- Healthy marine and coastal environments; and
- A community which is engaged in protecting the natural environment and minimising threatening processes.
