About CMN

logo leaves

The Far South Coast Conservation Management Network (CMN) supports private landholders in the Bega Valley Shire to recover and manage native vegetation on their properties.

The CMN aims to inspire and motivate landholders, increase knowledge about native vegetation management and develop the skills to do this work. The coordinator manages the CMN website, produces regular e-newsletters with links to stories, local events and information, organises workshops and field days, and responds to email and phone enquiries from landholders.

The CMN is supported by South East Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government and Bega Valley Shire Council.
