South Para Collaborative Fire Management Plan - draft plan under development
This fire management plan covers over 20 thousand hectares of conservation land, plantation forest and drinking water catchment managed by SA Water, Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) and ForestrySA in the Mount Lofty Ranges, as well as privately managed Heritage Agreement areas. This includes:

- Cromer, Cudlee Creek, Hale, Kaiserstuhl, Kenneth Stirling (Burdetts Block), Montacute, Sandy Creek and Warren Conservation Parks and Para Wirra Recreation Park
- Mount Crawford Forest Reserve
- Heritage Agreements adjoining public land.
This plan is being developed through collaboration between SA Water, ForestrySA, DEWNR and the SA Country Fire Service, to guide bushfire risk management across the landscape.
The planning area covers the largest linked area of remnant native vegetation in the Mount Lofty Ranges.
The plan is being developed over 2011 and 2012.
