Landcare is a grassroots organisation that was established over 30 years ago. It maintains a unique partnership between the community, landholders, government and businesses, all working together for the common interest of protecting and repairing the environment.
The principal thing that binds landcarers together is a strongly held belief in the need to preserve our natural heritage and, wherever possible, to rehabilitate the land.
The Upper Goulburn Landcare Network also has a strong focus on environmental education in schools across the Murrindindi Shire.
Landcare is not just about a more sustainable approach to private land management. It also has a strong focus on community support and engagement. The social aspect of Landcare is just as vital a resource as the environmental focus. Many Landcare groups have social outings and joining your local group is a fantastic way to meet people.
Attending workshops and field days is also a great way to meet locals and network with government representatives and specialists in their fields, as well as people with common interests.
The Upper Goulburn Landcare Network has 14 Landcare groups spread all over the Murrindindi Shire.

What benefits do volunteers bring to your group and organisation?
