Macedon

The Macedon project is focused on maintaining and protecting the existing remnant vegetation on site, which makes up a continuous 15ha section of the Macedon Ranges forest. Management activities have focused on eliminating the weeds on site, such as holly and thistle to ensure the vegetation’s native composition. The site currently provides high-quality habitat for several rare or threatened species, including the Brush tailed phascogale. Running through the site is Slaty Creek, home to native species such as platypi. Ongoing management will ensure weeds are excluded and the remnant vegetation is maintained as a protected forest.
