Description

Kevin and Gwen Mitchell of ‘Florida’ station live at Canbelego, between Nyngan and Cobar. Kevin has worked closely with the Central West CMA and other agencies to create a more open and balanced landscape in a region heavily impacted by invasive native scrub (INS). For over 30 years Kevin has implemented a program of treating INS, coupled with the ‘waterspreading’ land management technique to create a diverse and vibrant landscape. ‘We’ve received great encouragement from former Western Lands Commissioner Dick Condon and Ray Thompson from the Central West CMA in carrying out this work’” said Kevin. Since the Mitchells started managing invasive scrub and undertaking water spreading they have seen dramatic improvements in productivity and biodiversity across the country.
