Lost Lands Found – the Flowering Grassland of Victoria
‘We are the newest caretakers and custodians of this ancient land that we now call ‘Home’. Our Home, Our Time, Our Turn!’
Dean Stewart, Wemba Wemba-Wergaia man.
Join Dean in getting to know your long forgotten ecological neighbours and discovering the rich natural treasures of your own backyard.
Less than 1% of what was one of the largest grasslands on this planet survives today, with much of it decimated in just the last 70 years. The Western Plains Grassland has gone from one of the state’s richest and extensive ecologies in just decades to one of our state’s most critically endangered. Make a deeper connection with the special local, natural landscapes and ecologies and importantly in doing so, learn what we may personally do to protect and nurture these ancient flowering grasslands.
