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.
A member of the Allambee Landcare Group spotted this beautiful Koala and her baby recently in the Allambee Reserve area, near Mc Conville Lane. It is encouraging to see the baby with mum, as it confirms they are surviving in the area! If you spot a Koala you can register your sighting via the Australian Koala Foundation website.
One silver lining of COVID is that it encouraged us to explore more environmentally-friendly options for holding our meetings. Several online meetings, including three Board meetings, have now been held and although we have experienced some connectivity hiccups, the experience has been positive.
If your Landcare Group is holding online meetings, we'd love to hear about your experience. We'd also love the opportunity to connect with you at a future meeting. Please email SGLN's Facilitator, Andrea (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you would like her join in, and pass on your meeting dates, times, links and locations.
