Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink

Stepping stones of natural habitat across the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network’s ‘Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink’ seeks to improve catchment health and address the lack of landscape connectivity between two significant areas of remnant vegetation the Mornington Peninsula National Park (Greens Bush) and Arthurs Seat State Park. Through revegetation and weeding, and fencing of remnants, a biolink will be created across private property in the project area, benefiting numerous threatened fauna including Powerful owls and Swamp skinks.

This project will help bring to life the exciting vision of the Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network and the community to have a biolink connection along the length of the Mornington Peninsula.
