Landcare is so much more than just planting trees. We also work to promote best practice approaches to weed and pest animal management.
Meet Rory, the feral pig. Feral pigs cause all sorts of problems for agriculture, biosecurity, our environment and native wildlife.
Landcare NSW is working with Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to deliver the Managing Established Pest Animals and Weeds (MEPAAW) project across the state delivering training and extension activities identified through a series of facilitated workshops and development of local activity plans.
Rory will be one of three different images you will be able to download, colour in and submit to our Easter Colouring Competition. More details to follow soon.
The Ag Bag
Landcare NSW will be in this year’s popular “Ag Bag”.
Every cent raised by the “Ag Bag” goes directly to the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) Foundation’s Community Futures Grant program.
At just $20 this Showbag is valued at more than $66, and is a celebration of Australian agriculture offering a range of products donated by local companies. Landcare NSW has supplied native seed packs to be included in the 3,500 bags on offer. The bag is available from the Home & Lifestyle Pavilion.
