Landcare and community Natural Resource Management (NRM) groups and networks groups work tirelessly across the region to achieve positive outcomes on both public and private land. Landcare is a major contributor to the achievement of the North East Regional Catchment Strategy priority actions.
With over 60 Landcare and related community NRM groups across the region, it is difficult to find the full range of activities and achievements delivered by these groups.
