Loch/Nyora Landcare Group was founded in 1996 and is located in Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority area. The group holds regular meetings and activities.

The Group recently worked with the Nyora Primary School to develop the Biodiversity Blitz project for the school. Origin Energy funded the project so stand by for some super work to be done at the school by the students, staff and families to plant out the school grounds with native plants.  The plantings are designed to attract and support native birds and small critters.

Loch Nyora are running a project to create habitat for the Sword Grass Brown Butterfly. The caterpillar is totally dependent on the plant known as the Red Fruit Saw Sedge. They hope to link with neighbouring groups to create more habitat for the caterpillars and butterfies. Great work and exciting project. Malcolm Brown from the group is leading the project.

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 Lyall, 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.
