Developing a greater understanding of traditional land management practices used by Aboriginal people.
This is a project developed and managed primarily through the DECCW, with collaboration and assistance from the Lachlan CMA. It forms an integral part of the Soil Health program, and involves monitoring and assessment of wind erosion, dust and land management monitoring and evaluation.
The objective of the project is to develop and test a Market Based Instrument (MBI) to sequester soil carbon in part of the Cowra Trough area of the Lachlan Catchment.
A partnership between the Lachlan CMA and Barrick Gold at Lake Cowal, employing a Conservation Field Officer trainee who will work within the Lachlan catchment.
Monitoring soil moisture and soil carbon in mixed farming systems within the Lachlan catchment.
Protecting, enhancing and increasing the amount of native vegetation in the Conimbla (near Cowra), Dananbilla (near Young) and the Condobolin focus landscape areas.
This project is an on-going external contract to assess the biodiversity value of Travelling Stock Routes (TSRs) and develop management agreements for high conservation value sites.
This project aims to establish a monitoring methodology for soil moisture and soil carbon particularly targeting mixed farming systems in the Lachlan Catchment. It will encapsulate change in soil parameters due to improved management practices and landholders improved knowledge and skills regarding soil conditions and health.
Protecting the intact wetland areas and streams of the the Upper Lachlan which are under threat from erosion.
