Bellarine Catchment Network
This community driven project recognises that all sections of the community need to play an active role in caring for the environment. This is best achieved on a catchment wide basis
Since inception the Bellarine Catchment Network (formerly Swan Bay Integrated Catchment Management Committee) and project has achieved significant environmental and education outcomes on the Bellarine Peninsula and has become widely recognised as the peak community environment committee. These outcomes include assisting in the protection of Swan Bay and Lake Connewarre RAMSAR wetlands, pest plant and animal control, erosion control, remnant habitat protection, revegetation, coastal dune and saltmarsh protection and enhancement.
The Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) has grown and strengthened over ten years of operation with a wide cross section of community groups and agencies. It now has thirteen community groups and seven agencies represented on the committee. It is this integration and diverse representation of community, agency and industry that has led to the level of achievements and joint outcomes on the Bellarine Peninsula.
