About the Molonglo Catchment Group

The Molonglo Catchment Group is one of three community-based catchment groups in the ACT. All catchment group areas cross over the NSW border, however the Molonglo Catchment is largely in NSW. The catchment groups act as umbrella groups for the many Landcare and other natural resource management (NRM) interest groups in their geographical area.

The Molonglo Catchment Group was formed in late 2003 as a network of Landcare and Park Care groups in the Molonglo Catchment. Our role is to help these groups promote and undertake environmental protection and enhancement within the catchment. The Group has been supported by the ACT and Australian Governments’ environmental programs.

Along the Molonglo at Floriade 2009

Each Spring the Molonglo Catchment Group and the Artists Society of Canberra challenge artists to capture the spirit of the Molonglo. The works are exhibited for a week at Floriade, on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, iconic heart of the nation's capital.

During that week, the Molonglo Catchment Group and other community groups give presentations and provide information about management of our natural resources.

Frog calls - 1

This PlaceStory is the first of two that accompany "Frogs of the ACT region - A Glovebox Guide".

The guide is an easy to use field guide to assist in the identification of selected frogs of the ACT and surrounding areas. In this PlaceStory John Wombey explains why frogs call and why the calls are the best means of identifying frogs.

The guide was produced by the Molonglo Catchment Group with the cooperation of Frogwatch ACT and Forde Developments.

Landcare Display Trailer

This trailer has been designed for Landcare and Parkcare groups in the ACT Region to utilise at field days and displays. It comes with a stand-alone display system, brochure holders, tables and chairs and a range of posters and brochures. It may be booked through the Molonglo Catchment Coordinator.

Friends of Glenburn

A new group has been formed called Friends of Glenburn to undertake activities in the Glenburn/Burbong precinct.

For those people not familiar with the area, it involves very early settlers (1831) in the Queanbeyan area. It still contains relics of European settlement in the area like the pise and slab huts of Glenburn Homestead and a small graveyard that dates to 1837 where 5 members of the first settler family, Luke and Mary Colverwell, are buried.

Watson Woodlands Working Group

In July 2002, after a sustained 10 year community campaign against a housing development in north Watson, the Watson Community Association was successful in protecting an 18 hectare native grassy woodland. Watson Woodlands Working Group was then established to care for this woodland which is now called Justice Robert Hope Park. The Park was expanded on August 2 2005 to include an additional 18ha. The Group has achieved a great deal by removing weeds and planting local natives.

Interacting with the Ngunawal Perspective

Between November 2013 and July 2014 the Molonglo Catchment Group (MCG) conducted a pilot series of ‘walk and talk’ events in collaboration with the Ngunawal Australian Aboriginal community. The events were conducted at various field locations in the ACT and surrounding region, interpreting different types of environmental connectedness and landscape change from ancient times to the present day.

Work Experience Students, Jay and Cory, created a PlaceStory describing what they had done during the week they spent with us in May, 2013.  See their PlaceStory at http://placestories.com/story/139769
