Council manages a number of Bushland Reserves throughout the municipality. Many of these areas contain natural remnants of the original vegetation that existed before development occurred. Bushland Reserves provide a home for local native wildlife and help preserve wildflowers and other indigenous vegetation. The Whitehorse Urban Biodiversity Strategy for Council Managed Open Space, Streetscapes and Community Facilities has been prepared to guide biodiversity conservation and management actions undertaken by Council.
Council has adopted and implemented a Fire Management Strategy for our Bushland Reserves. Council undertakes a range of fire management works including maintenance of strategic fuel breaks, undertaking ongoing fire patrols and providing education and information on fire danger to neighbouring properties. These activities have improved bushfire safety for residents and their properties, while also taking into account the values of the reserves for recreation, education, and fauna and flora conservation.
