Loch/Nyora Landcare Group was founded in 1996 and is located in Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority area. The group holds regular meetings and activities.
The Group recently worked with the Nyora Primary School to develop the Biodiversity Blitz project for the school. Origin Energy funded the project so stand by for some super work to be done at the school by the students, staff and families to plant out the school grounds with native plants. The plantings are designed to attract and support native birds and small critters.
Loch Nyora are running a project to create habitat for the Sword Grass Brown Butterfly. The caterpillar is totally dependent on the plant known as the Red Fruit Saw Sedge. They hope to link with neighbouring groups to create more habitat for the caterpillars and butterfies. Great work and exciting project. Malcolm Brown from the group is leading the project.
