What does a Landcare group do?
Landcare groups are community groups that work around Australia to protect and restore the natural environment and its productivity.
Some Landcare group activities may include:
- pest control (weeds and animals)
- monitoring water quality
- improving farm productivity
- community education
- improving wildlife habitat
- seed collection
- training and socialising.
Ultimately, it is up to each group’s members to decide on the projects they will tackle.
