Much has happened at LaSource Country in the last few years but since little has being public in nature this site has being rather dormant.
However this is about to change with the LaSource owners launching a new business providing Information Technology Services and Products, not only to Braidwood but also in Sydney, Canberra and surrounding areas. If you are interested in Information technology services, Internet related products including some custom designed for Rural and Remote people, then please visit our website People, Systems and Things PSaT.com.au.
Of particular to people local to La Source Country in Tomboye/Braidwood is the beginning of The Habitat Project which aims to provide a community resources and sustainable development and research opportunity at La Source Country. This project invites participants onsite and online so come and learn about The Habitat Project.
At LaSource Country we suspect we may have some High Conservation value Box Gum Grassy Woodland so are in the process of confirming this. Watch this space. In the mean time why not learn more about this unique Australian habitat which once dominated Eastern Australia.
Box gum grassy woodlands are an iconic part of the eastern Australian landscape. Widely spaced trees, predominantly of the genus Eucalyptus, gently shade a native grass and wildflower ground cover. These woodlands are dominated by white box (Eucalyptus albens), yellow box (E. melliodora), Blakely’s red gum (E. blakelyi) and (in the Nandewar Bioregion) coastal grey box or inland grey box (E. moluccanaor E. macrocarpa). Box gum
grassy woodlands typically exist on the most productive soils throughout eastern
and south-eastern Australia, and this is why they have been preferentially cleared for
agriculture. As a result of this clearing, in combination with high levels of grazing, fertiliser application and cultivation, box gum grassy woodlands are critically endangered

|About the Wildlife Land Trust
In 2007 Humane Society International launched the Wildlife Land Trust (WLT) Australia in an effort to preserve and protect our vital native habitats and the animals that depend on them, in a network of permanent sanctuaries both throughout the country and internationally.
Working under the guiding principle of “humane stewardship”, the WLT protects not only vast and impressive landscapes, but also the smaller, humbler places that provide for the needs of all wildlife, rare and common species alike.
Since being initiated by The Humane Society of the United States in 1993, the WLT has grown to protect more than 1.8 million acres of habitat in Australia, Canada, South Africa, USA, Belize, Romania, Jamaica, India and Indonesia.
