Joint management is helping to care for local parks

Tuesday 29 July, 2014

Rangers from Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) and Parks Victoria have joined forces to improve access to the Corringle Foreshore Reserve. The walking track to the popular reserve and fishing spot has been cleared and widened and the chain and board walkway replaced.

Corringle Foreshore Reserve is one of nine parks and reserves in East Gippsland that is jointly managed by Parks Victoria and GLaWAC.  Parks Victoria’s Susie Cutlack said joint management aims to incorporate Gunaikurnai traditional knowledge and culture into all aspects of park management. 

“These relationships are about sharing our knowledge and skills with each other and working on country together. I am pleased we are building such a solid foundation for future joint management of this land. 

“We couldn’t have completed this project without help from the Gunaikurnai rangers and working with them has been a great experience,” she said. 

CEO of GLaWAC, Barry Kenny said: “As our rangers build their skills and knowledge, they will become more involved in park management.” 

Future joint projects planned at Corringle Foreshore Reserve to improve the area for everyone to enjoy include a plant identification day, jetty maintenance, weed control and revegetation between camping areas. 

Other projects that Gunaikurnai rangers are working on in jointly managed parks in the area include cultural heritage mapping, fox baiting and installing new signs.
