As part of a citizen science collaboration, we worked together with Greening Australia and Parks Victoria to create a ClimateWatch trail at Haining Farm.
In 1974, Sir John T. Reid gifted Haining Farm to the Victorian Conservation Trust for the people of Victoria to use for the purpose of education and conservation. Haining Farm presents an opportunity to transform a dairy farm into a public park, with habitat for endangered native species like the Helmeted Honeyeater and lowland Leadbeater’s Possum.
Works to the site are underway and will provide walking and cycling trails, bird hides, nature-based playgrounds, picnic areas, community meeting centers and education areas. For the latest updates on the site click here.
The trail will contribute to Haining Farm's Educational Program which is a joint partnership between Zoos Victoria, Parks Victoria, and Greening Australia. Through this partnership, several new species that are important to support the Helmeted Honeyeater and Leadbeater’s Possum will be added and monitored through ClimateWatch.
