Landcare is a national community volunteer program aiming to improve land, water and environment. There are more than 180 Landcare and community-based natural resource management groups across Corangamite with more than 4000 volunteers.
What does Landcare do?
Landcare works with community groups promoting and delivering environment projects designed to help farmers and land managers. This includes pest plant and animal management on private and public land, soil health and salinity control, revegetation projects to improve land management practices and riparian management. Landcare brings together individuals and communities who are keen to improve their local landscape.
