Advice date:

September 2021


The Environmental Trust requested the Commission to evaluate the Trust’s Community Bush Regeneration Program. This
$8 million program funded 34 projects over six-years, commencing in 2011-2012. The program aimed to:

  • regenerate degraded natural areas, including bushland, riverbanks, degraded waterways and rare and endangered ecosystems
  • improve the ongoing health and resilience of important ecosystems and habitats of rare and endangered flora and fauna
  • improve ecological connectivity within and between natural areas
  • improve the capacity of, and resource local community groups to protect, restore and enhance the environment by strengthening community organisations who undertake environmental works in their local area.

In September 2021, we submitted a final report to the Trust and will make the report available on this website after it has been considered by the Trust.
