Get connected with the environment in your local community.
Landcare Week celebrates and acknowledges the thousands of Landcare groups, networks, coordinators, other environmental care groups, and volunteers working on conservation and sustainable land management activities in their local area. You may wish to mark the week by inviting your local Member of Parliament to join the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare (PFL). To do this, download a template letter here and please attach the PFL application form.
This year National Landcare Week will run from August 3 to 9 and celebrates the strength of Landcare and its ability to support the needs of a diverse community and respond to issues, such as drought and bush fires.
Connecting with nature improves your mental and connection to place. Landcare is about the partnerships created by local communities to restore and protect their local environment.
To be able to do this Landcare often partners with a range of groups, government agencies and non-profit organisations.
In 2019 Landcare NSW continued its partnership with the NSW Local Land Services to deliver the new NSW Landcare Program.
The program aims to improve the health of our environment and natural resources through greater participation in Landcare activities.
As part of the program, 72 part-time local coordinators and 12 regional coordinators across NSW are employed to support Landcare initiatives from grass roots activities to regional scale activities.
You can support your local group activities and meet other people who have a shared vision for conservation and sustainable land management. No matter where you live there is a group near you managing a local environmental issue. Find your local Landcare group here.
