MUDGEGONGA & DISTRICT BLACKBERRY ACTION GROUP


The Beechworth fires that swept through Mudgegonga and Districts has left a major economic and environmental impact over the whole landscape. The fires have bought about significant regrowth and new infestations of blackberries throughout the fire areas. Many Gullies, steep country, river flats and previously unaffected areas are now threatened. 

The Bushfire Recovery Program has provided funding for the Mudgegonga and District Blackberry Action Group to employ project officers and offer financial support to landowners directly affected by the fires. This program was facilitated by the Victorian Blackberry Taskforce and offers communities well-coordinated and effective group action for control of pest plants.

An eight-person steering committee has been established and a project officer employed to coordinate the program.
