Addressing natural resource management issues in the Snowy River Catchment
The Snowy River Interstate Landcare Committee (SRILC) represents nine landcare groups across two states – NSW and Victoria, in the south-east of Australia. The region stretches from the Monaro in southern NSW to the northern reaches of Far East Gippsland in Victoria.
SRILC is a volunteer organisation, managed independently by a Committee of volunteer landholders, that supports groups and individuals who are collectively working towards improving environmental outcomes and sustainability of our resources in the Snowy River Catchment.
Our nine member groups are formed along sub-catchment boundaries and meet regularly each year to discuss and address natural resource management issues and the challenges affecting agriculture.
In addition to the nine landcare groups represented by SRILC, SRILC has forged strong working partnerships with local councils and two catchment management authorities (one from NSW and one from Victoria) and regularly engages with state and federal government departments as well as local and regional community groups.
A majority of our Landcare members are livestock graziers with some opportunistic cropping however our membership also includes smaller landholders, not involved in production agriculture.
