Bellarine Catchment Network: The Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) comprises representatives from key catchment and coastal organisations (both government and non-government) with an integrated catchment management focus. This includes environment groups, ‘Friends Of’, Landmanagers, Landcare and Coastcare groups. BCN employees seve officers to implement the projects of the committee. For more information regarding the BCN employees and their roles, visit the ‘contact us’ section of our website. A designated representative from each of the organisations is appointed by the individual organisations to the BCN. In 2008, a ten year review of the project was held and a new action plan, The Bellarine Catchment Network Action Plan 2009 – 2014, was developed. At this time the Swan Bay Integrated Catchment Management Committee changed its name to the Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) to better reflect the area that the project now covers. Currently a new Action Plan is being developed. An update and link will be added to the website in 2020.

The Bellarine Catchment Network region will work towards healthy, well connected and resilient wetlands, waterways and native vegetation ecosystems; sustainable agricultural and land management practices; and a community which is engaged and involved in protecting and managing the natural environment.
