Welcome to South East Landcare

Landcare is a national network of thousands of community groups who care for our country. Australia boasts more than 4000 community landcare groups and thousands of landcare volunteers.

South East Landcare (SEL) is a federation of 7 Landcare networks, stretching from the Illawarra in the north, through Shoalhaven, Upper Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla, Far South Coast, Upper Snowy and Snowy River Interstate – which reaches across our southern border into Victoria.

Each of these networks has its own volunteer management committee and one or more employed coordinators. Those which have been successful with particular grants may also have an employed project officer, for the duration of the grant.

Because of the geographical and climate range of SEL, different networks have different interests, eg the Upper Snowy is largely a sheep grazing area while the Far South Coast is specialised in dairy farming.

SEL is establishing a partnership with South East Local Land Services, having enjoyed a valued partnership with the Southern Rivers CMA board and staff prior to the transition to Local Land Services. South East LLS is developing its scope to provide continuous support to each of the 7 networks;  assisting in the preparation of submissions, the management of projects, and the coordination of field days.
