The Mudgegonga and District Landcare Group fosters a strong sense of stewardship amongst local landholders.
The group covers the areas of Barwidgee Creek, Mudgegonga and Rosewhite. The Mudgegonga and District Landcare Group formed in 1994, and has been undertaking a wide range of activities and projects in the area since then, including pest control, gully and stream frontage erosion control and soil health.
Landholders in the area had been involved in various soil conservation schemes before the formation of the landcare group in 1994. Our group is particularly focused on sustainable agriculture and improving habitat for native fauna and flora in a farming landscape. This focus has been instrumental in bringing farmers and lifestyle residents together, improving and sharing knowledge and tackling landscape wide issues.
The group provided leadership and auspice for important fire recovery projects following the 2009 fires. It has reached out to adjoining areas with a community blackberry program of 180 landholders and managed soil stabilisation and biodiversity improvement works such as nest box building and placement.
Join us for our monthly meetings at the Mudgegonga Hall to learn about current projects and new opportunities. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
