About Altona CSR Landcare Reserve
The Altona CSR Landcare Reserve (70Ha) provides one of the last natural vestiges of pre-European vegetation remaining within the council area. The Williamstown and Lyndoch Landcare Group have spent over 20 years working hard to remove threats and increase diversity across the reserve. This valuable remnant provides habitat for a wide range of conservation-rated native flora and fauna species. The diversity includes over 213 species of native plants with 63 of these having national, state or regional conservation status. The reserve also provides habitat for 96 species of native birds, 10 of which have national, state or regional conservation ratings.
