Addressing natural resource management issues in the Snowy River Catchment,
the Snowy River Interstate Landcare Committee (SRILC) represents nine rural 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 to discuss and address natural resource management issues and the challenges affecting agriculture.
In addition to the nine landcare groups represented by SRILC, we have forged strong working partnerships with local councils and regularly engage 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 with an interest in a more productive World.
The Snowy River Interstate Landcare Committee has received funding through the Victorian Government's Victorian Landcare Facilitator Program to provide Landcare facilitator support until June 2019.
The Victorian Government has provided funding to Landcare groups and networks to engage 68 Landcare facilitators to support the work of local Landcare communities to protect, enhance and restore our natural environment, improve agriculture productivity, and build group and network capacity.
