Maa Bhandara Gharani Community Conserved Area(CCA) is located on Chura Pahad hillock and is protected by the community of Jamjharan Village. Maa Bhandara Gharani forest was in a miserable condition before the community initiated conservation efforts; the forest was formerly over-exploited by the Villagers and outsiders and was on the brink of ruin. The conservation efforts were then self- initiated by the communities. As the tribal community is dependent on forest produce, they have sound knowledge of traditional practices. Cleaning of the forest is a source for fuel wood collection but it is mainly meant to support the rich growth of forest. The community emphasizes more on seeding than plantation and thus they make seed traps, restrict collection of roots, do not cut trees of medicinal value and never collect the whole bamboo root, leaving some shoot for regeneration.
