We are a network of 12 Landcare Groups and five Friends groups across the Shire of Moorabool. Our role is to support and resource our constituent groups. With over 600 volunteers involved in Landcare activities throughout the year.
The Network and groups are working on-
- projects to enhance biodiversity through vegetation corridors, linking remnant vegetation and the major forests
- projects to reduce the impact of weeds and rabbits
- projects to promote sustainable agriculture
- advocacy in relation to the above activities
