The Far South Coast Landcare Association acts as a focal point and voice for Landcare in this area. We employ a Local Landcare Coordinator, Seedbank Coordinator and Landcare Project Officers.  We work in partnership with the South East Local Land Services who are the driving force behind Natural Resource Management in the South East region.

We provide assistance to groups and individuals through these positions, with strategic project planning and with technical on-ground support and advice. We also co-ordinate and conduct training forums, workshops and presentations by guest speakers.

For more than 10 years, the Far South Coast Landcare Association has been involved in projects that address issues such as:

  • Gully & riverbank erosion
  • Re-establishing native vegetation
  • Protecting wetlands
  • Improving water quality
  • Addressing weed problems
  • Feral animal control
  • Estuary and dune management
  • Soil health
  • Grazing management

The Far South Coast Landcare Association helps by providing:

  • Farm planning support for individual landholders
  • Project development assistance
  • A community native seed bank
  • Native vegetation species advice
  • Tours of Landcare project sites
  • Educational seminars and field days
  • Landcare camps for young people
