At the previous AGM, fire was the dominant concern, at this 2022 AGM it is floods! Next year is challenging to even think about! As we reflect on the changes to our lives and environment we find almost every aspect of life has been affected by climate change. While mitigation is the dominant discourse, adaptation to the already changed climate is the less explored challenge.
This report and the workshop that is central to it responds to the observation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and others that, despite growing knowledge of the need for adaptation, implementation is at best incremental and inadequate.
Countries are good at generating information on the need for adaptation and many, such as Australia, are relatively good at developing plans but these plans are not implemented or implemented too slowly. At best, adaptation is reactive to catastrophic events.
This guide is designed to assist you in assessing your land and managing it in a way that protects and enhances the natural environment, provides a healthy and safe environment for animals and is appropriate for the time you have available.
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.
The purpose of Weeds of the Goulburn Broken is to provide all land managers, public and private with a locally relevant field guide that will assist in the identification and management of environmental and agricultural weeds in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.
This booklet provides an insight into some of the wildlife species and habitat types that occur in the upper regions of the Goulburn Broken Catchment, including information about each species’ needs, threats and ways we can help them survive.

Installing Nestboxes – why bother?
• Permanent nest-boxes are a great way to survey secretive native animals in your local area.
• Many areas of bush don’t contain enough hollows for the birds, bats, possums and gliders that live in the area.
• Even where there are enough hollows, installing nest-boxes lets you see what’s going on.
• If you install quality-built nest-boxes, they’ll last for many years and will breed many generations of the animals that use them.
