Lake Dulverton and Callington Park Committee
The Lake Dulverton & Callington Park Committee is a group predominately made up of community members. The group oversee the management and development of the Lake Dulverton Conservation Area, Callington Park and the Dulverton Walking track, located at Oatlands township in the Southern Midlands Municipality. The Lake is a declared Conservation area. The Committee is accountable to the Southern Midlands Council. It includes a representative from Parks and Wildlife and a Councillor is always the Chair of the Committee. The Committee has its own budget each year with funds made up of a combination of Council and community donations.
As part of the groups role, consideration is given to environmental management issues along with development of the area for recreational use. Within the Lake there are areas of habitat conserved for the varied wildlife that depend upon the lake, whilst also providing for defined areas that allow of for fishing, boating and other water recreational activities.
Development of the lake foreshore, the 7 Km walking track between Oatlands and Parattah, and the Callington Park area is also a priority. Establishing and enhancing the existing native vegetation and weed management have been area of focus over the recent years in these areas under the Committee's management. The committee aim to ensure that local residents, and the many visitors and tourists that use the area can enjoy their overall experience and have a better appreciation of the environment as a result.
