Projects in the region

A range of programs and projects put natural resources management (NRM) into action in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (AMLR) region.

These programs and projects focus on making sure the needs of the environment are balanced with the needs of the community. They deliver on environmental targets set out in the region’s NRM plan. This plan was developed by the AMLR NRM Board in consultation with the community, and is delivered by Natural Resources AMLR. The board collaborates with many stakeholders to manage the region’s land, water and native plant and animal resources.

These programs and projects are made possible by the NRM levy, and funding from the state and federal government, as well as community and industry partnerships.
