If you are a primary producer there are some wonderful opportunities available to assist you in maintaining the balance between improving productivity on your land while managing weeds, pest animals and improving your soil health and landscape resilience to degradation and erosion.

 

If you are a landholder and do not generate a commercial income from your land, Landcare can keep you in touch with how to manage your weeds and pest animals which has flow-on benefit’s to the region as a whole.  Being involved in your Landcare Group allows you to access Government funding and can provide opportunities to forge new friendships and learn from a diverse range of individuals.


By becoming an active member, you can provide vital information to NRM and Departmental bodies ie. Weed density mapping, feral animal impacts, which collectively assists in Government policy decision making and attention to NRM issues.

The 9 member groups of Snowy River Interstate Landcare Committee include Ando, Bibbenluke and Cathcart (ABC), Craigie, Corrowong/Wallendibby and Tombong, Deddick River, Delegate River, Little Plains, Mila, Nungatta/Yambulla and Mt. Piper. These Landcare groups are formed along sub catchment boundaries and meet up to four times a year to discuss and solve a range of agricultural and natural resource management issues.
 
The majority of Landcare members are sheep and cattle graziers, with some minimal cropping activities mostly centred around fodder crops.   Landcare groups list as a high priority the effect of weeds on production and the environment, soil erosion, vertebrate pests, riparian health and matters of sustainable agricultural production.
