The Nillumbik Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is a partnership between Nillumbik Shire Council and community members to engage the public in creating habitat gardens for local wildlife.
This Communities Environment Program-funded project ran from 2020 to 2021. It built capacity within the Nillumbik community to identify and control deer by providing educational activities and resources.
