In April 2017 the Junortoun Community Action Group was successful in obtaining a grant from the City of Greater Bendigo to perform works at Manning Reserve to highlight the native plants present on the site.

This work will involve working with the Bendigo Field Naturalists Group and installation of signs to highlight native features and the history and significance of the site.

The Junortoun Community Action Group has also been active at Manning Reserve over many years improving its appearance.

  • Removing litter and broken glass
  • Removing weed (gazania) infestation
  • Repainting the heritage sign
  • Using Manning Reserve as a base for Clean Up Australia Day activities

The City of Greater Bendigo installed new fencing at the reserve in 2015, for which the community of Junortoun is sincerely grateful.
