Landcare

Landcare is a national network of thousands of locally-based community groups who care for the natural resources of our country.

Through Australia’s people and communities, the Landcare movement is making a big difference in caring for our country.

All around Australia, Landcare volunteers are proving that together we can repair and viably manage our precious natural resources. This unique partnership between communities, government and organisations is achieving great things.

Improving our farmlands

Many primary producers are active participants in Landcare. They make significant contributions to combating soil salinity and erosion through sound land management practices and sustainable productivity. More than 40 per cent of farmers are involved in Landcare and many more practice Landcare farming.

Breathing new life into waterways

Groups work to conserve, rehabilitate and better manage our creeks, river systems and wetlands.

Bringing back trees

Each year Landcarers plant many millions of native trees, shrubs and grasses for a range of benefits, including improved soil and water quality. They restore bushland and conserve sensitive areas on both public and private land.

Restoring wildlife habitats

Volunteers have provided protection for thousands of native species, including threatened and endangered flora and fauna.

Local landcare groups

There are Landcare groups within the Loddon Shire.  For further information and contact details, please check the Landcare website under related links or select the Environmental Groups category in the Community Directory.
