How you can get involved
Look at the big picture
E.G.
Its not just about planting trees!
Weed invasion is one of the biggest challenges facing Landcare groups. Weeds cost Australia
over $4b each year, putting native flora species at risk and decreasing habitat for native fauna
like birds and lizards. You will learn how to identify, remove and dispose of weeds common to
your local area.
Once weeds have been removed, you can assist with revegetating the area with local native
species.
You will learn the significance of each of the plant species being planted and how to plant out an
area for biodiversity.
Depending on the site, you may also have the option to undertake other activities, including nest
box building, flora and fauna monitoring activities, indigenous and non-indigenous cultural
heritage restoration and site maintenance.
Volunteers come away from their Landcare experience with a better understanding of
biodiversity, their catchment and how their activities at home and work may be impacting on our
fragile ecosystems.
Come and enjoy a day in the outdoors in the fresh air with the birds singing and the trees
swaying.
