This report details the results of the participation by the Soil Conservation Authority in the Upper Yarra and Dandenong Ranges Land Management and Stream Environments Study (Volume 3 - A Study of the Land). It is based on a 1975 investigation of the land undertaken by the Authority in the Yarra River catchment. The investigation covered most of the area comprising the four shires involed in the study (Sherbrooke, Lillydale, Upper Yarra and Healesville). The report was prepared by the Soil Conservation Authority for Kinnaird Hill deRohan and Young Pty Ltd, and was published in June 1976.
