WELCOME TO LANDCARE IN THE ILLAWARRA
What is Landcare
Landcare is a national grass roots movement driven by volunteers around Australia who are addressing environmental issues we are facing as a nation. This could be anything from poor water quality, salinity and erosion, loss of biodiversity, poor soil health, impacts from climate change, impacts from invasive species, coastal degradation, marine debris issues, and a loss of Australian wildlife. Thankfully over 5, 500 groups around the country are working on these issues from remote rural communities to bustling busy cities through activities such as seed collections, tree plantings, weed removal, clean up events, erosion control, native species recovery projects and pest species management.
Thousands of everyday Australians get their hands dirty and regularly make a difference, and here in there Illawarra we have over 100 Landcare and Bushcare groups working to repair our local environment. Join today!
