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:

  • revegetation
  • 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.

How do I join?
