South Gippsland Landcare Network

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and meet. The South Gippsland Landcare Network stretches from Mt Best to Mt Lyal, and along the prom coast. It’s made up of 16 local groups working to preserve and protect the natural environment, while also enhancing the long-term sustainability of farming in this part of Victoria. We’re proud to work across both Bunurong and Gunaikurnai country, and to recognise the rich history embedded in this land we now share. As a network, we’re a diverse group – made up of primary producers, hobby farmers, tree changers, backyard gardeners and environmentalists of all sorts. This page is part of our community, so we welcome feedback and input from anyone who’s interested in having a voice here.
