Gardens for Wildlife


Pilot period is now closed. Stay tuned for future visits.

Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is a network of community groups and councils supporting each other to involve local residents, schools, and businesses in caring for the native plants and animals of our communities.

Bellarine Catchment Network  worked with Ocean Grove Coastcare group and Barwon Coast Committee of Management to deliver an Ocean Grove specific gardens for wildlife program through 2018 and 2019. This program funded by the City of Greater Geelong will include the assessment of local resident's properties for indigenous flora and fauna values. From the garden visit we suggest changes that can your garden more wildlife friendly.

We are currently applying for funding to keep this program running across the Bellarine Peninsula.

For more information, watch this short youtube video provided by Gardens for Wildlife Victoria about 'the garden visit'.





Residents of Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff can find a local Gardens for Wildlife program hosted by Swan Bay Environment Association here.
