K2C Region

Scottsdale© Stuart Cohen "Scottsdale"

K2C has recently expanded its boundary to the north to include more Murrumbidgee catchment and down to the Victorian border to include the broader Monaro grasslands. See map below. K2C will focus on linking up the edge of Kosciuzko National Park and ACT Namadgi Range with the SE NSW coastal escarpment. Where possible K2C, will work with existing groups and individuals from the escarpment to the coast. The K2C partnership will focus effort on private and public lands where landholders are interested in a cooperative and voluntary arrangement.

K2C is a key regional partner with the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative. See map below which shows where K2C fits with the other GER regions.

An anchor in the Landscape -"Scottsdale"

The first great stride towards bridging the ecological gap between Kosciuszko and the coast was the purchase in 2006 by Bush Heritage Australia of the 1300 hectare species rich "Scottsdale" property located south of Canberra, 4m north of Bredbo.

"Scottsdale" has a long history as a working farm and cattle grazing is being used as a tool to restore native grasslands. The property still contains a variety of woodland and grassland communities that are regarded as endangered or threatened. It is now being actively managed to control weeds and re-establish native vegetation.
