Active local people and communities are vital for ensuring the Wimmera’s land, water and biodiversity have a healthy future.

Every person and business that lives, works, recreates or has a special interest in the Wimmera uses and influences the natural environment. Human activity has the biggest influence on catchment condition. It is important that the region’s community is knowledgeable, skilled, motivated and informed.
