Welcome to Murray Landcare

Murray Landcare Collective comprises community based, not for profit, landcare, agriculture, producer and environmental groups in the Murray region of New South Wales.  It has a focus on learning together through collective interaction and using our entrepreneurial skills to improve our resource base to deliver better natural resource management, sustainable agriculture and rural community development.

There are about 70 independent groups in Murray Landcare Collective with over 2,000 members focusing on a diverse range of topics including wildlife and threatened species, food supply chain models, revegetation and habitat conservation, engaging in nature, creating occupational opportunities, riparian and soil management, farming best practices (eg. livestock, grazing, irrigation, dryland cropping, rangelands management and business skills) and mental health and resilient rural communities.

Murray Landcare Collective is not a formal landcare network or organisation, it does not operate to represent the Murray region.  It does operate to bring like minded groups together to work collectively. We have face-to-face meetings three to four times per year.   

Convener – Paula Sheehan, Regional Landcare Coordinator
