Resources & Publications

There are many things land managers can do to conserve biodiversity. Resources and Publications in this section are designed to help land managers in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

In this section

Biodiversity Action Planning (BAP)

Biodiversity Action Planning (BAP) provides a valuable tool for everyone in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (GBC) interested in conserving native biodiversity

Biodiversity Monitoring Action Plan (BMAP)

The BMAP guides monitoring and research needs of the GBCMA, assists in tracking the Catchment’s progress towards the Resource Condition Targets (RCTs), and helps inform decision making relating to review, evaluation and development of projects.

Biodiversity Risk Mitigation Protocols for Roadsides

Roadsides provide immensely important refuge for biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. This report provides clear guidelines and simple measures to improve the capacity of local government to manage roadside management activities so as to reduce the risk of inadvertent damage to biodiversity values.

Conservation Covenants

A conservation covenant is an agreement between a landowner and Trust for Nature, which protects and enhances the conservation values of a piece of land.

General principles to keep in mind

There are many things land managers can do to actively manage for the conservation of biodiversity.

Goulburn Broken Land Health Strategy 2017 - 2020

The Goulburn Broken Land Health Strategy 2017 – 2020 follows on from the Goulburn Broken Dryland Landscape Strategy (2009-2011), the Draft Goulburn Broken Soil Health Strategy (2002) and Soil Health Action Plan (2006, updated 2012). The Land Health Strategy was developed in-house and focuses on the land and people systems of the Catchment as underpinned by soil and its condition.

Healthy Hectares

Owning a small property comes with a lot of expectations and responsibilities.

Goulburn Broken Indigenous Seed Bank

The Goulburn Broken Indigenous Seedbank, part of GV Community Energy, operates from the University of Melbourne's Dookie College Campus.

Locally native plants suitable for gardening in the Shepparton Region

A variety of native plants within the City of Greater Shepparton region are very suitable for use in gardens.

Direct seeding revegetation in the Goulburn Broken Catchment

The aim of this study was to design a monitoring protocol to evaluate direct seeding revegetation undertaken between 1999–2009 in the productive plains and upland slopes of the Goulburn Broken CMA, NE Victoria, and to identify factors that influence the success of conservation outcomes among sites.

Native Vegetation of the Goulburn Broken Riverine Plains

By Administrator
This project is delivered and funded primarily through the partnerships between the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA), Department of Primary Industries (DPI), Goulburn Murray Landcare Network (GMLN), Greater Shepparton City Council, Shire of Campaspe and Moira Shire.

Producing high quality seed for Silver Banksia

Silver Banksia once covered large tracts of land across southern Australia but in many regions it now exists as small populations or isolated trees, making it difficult to source high quality seed to restore this important species. This fact sheet details recent work to look at the genetic diversity of Silver Banksia at the Euroa Seed Production Area at Euroa Arboretum.

Revegetation Guide for the Goulburn Broken Catchment

This guide has been developed to provide advice and assist landholders with revegetation activities.

Shelter Belts on Farms

Shelter belts on farm can be an important part of your farm if done correctly. They can serve many purposes and can be created in many shapes and sizes. The benefits of a shelter belt could be to reduce the effect of cold and hot winds and provide shade from the sun for your stock and/or create corridors for beneficial insects and birds that could help protect crops and pastures.

Understanding your Soil Test

This booklet has been written for the dryland grazing zones of the Goulburn Broken Catchment of Victoria. The same principles will apply, however, to other dryland grazing zones in Victoria. It aims to assist land managers in understanding and interpreting soil test data.

Wildlife Guides for Landholders

The Wildlife Guides for Landholders provide detail on some of the species of wildlife, the major threats these species face and some of the recommended actions that can help to conserve these and many other wildlife species.
