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 with support from City of Greater Geelong, the Barwon Heads Community Bank Branch and the Victorian Government's Distinct Areas and Landscapes program, are delivering a Gardens for Wildlife program to residents of Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove, Indented Head and St Leonards.

The Gardens for Wildlife program assists residents in creating more wildlife-friendly gardens through improving habitat needs and biodiversity in the backyard. This includes a visit to the local resident's properties to assess biodiversity and habitat needs of the garden in order to suggest changes that can make your garden more wildlife friendly.

For more information, watch this short youtube video provided by Gardens for Wildlife Victoria about 'the garden visit' or download our informative flyer here





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