Racemosa Environmental Reserve was purchased by council in December 2011 under the Environment Levy land acquisition program. Council has prepared a draft management plan which marks the final step in reserve establishment and guides the reserve for future operational maintenance and management.


The purpose of the management plan is to describe the reserves ecological, cultural, social, and economic values and express the associated management actions required to maintain or enhance these values over the next 10 years.
