Project update 

This month we continued to work with the community, while applying CSIRO science to restore and improve key environmental values. Citizen science is a continued focus for us and it was wonderful to have the local community participate in replanting of seeds as part of the Ginninderra grassland project.

As progress continues in our search for a development partner, we have refined our vision and are in the process of setting goals, objectives, benchmarks and measures that will underpin Ginninderra and make it unique.

We remain committed to engaging with community groups and individual citizens as we move deeper into planning processes in 2017 and beyond.

This is a follow-up to the autumn burn grassland restoration trials set up across 13 sites (five of them on the CSIRO Ginninderra property) in the Ginninderra catchment in April 2016.
