From 2022 membership registration is moving to an online system, called the Landcare Portal. Some Landcare Groups, including South Gippsland Landcare Network, have adopted this system. 

Please read the information below to determine which group you want to join and how to join. 

Joining Landcare means you get direct access to all the latest news, grants, events, support, as well as the chance to be part of your local group fostering environmental outcomes and social enjoyment.

You have the choice of either joining SGLN as an independent member or joining one of the locality-based Landcare groups (see Groups page for full list and map). We usually recommend joining the local group in your area unless you want to support the entire network.

To become an independent SGLN Member please follow this link, press the “join Landcare” button and fill in your details. Under the drop down arrow (“which group are your joining”) select Independent Network Member South Gippsland Landcare Network. Independent SGLN member fees are $33 (excludes credit card fees).

To join one of the locality-based groups note that the following groups have adopted the Landcare Portal:  Allambee Community Landcare Group,  Arawata Landcare Group, Corner Inlet Landcare Group, Hallston Regenerative Ag. Group, Loch-Nyora Landcare Group, Mardan Mirboo-Nth Landcare Group and Nerrena Tarwin Valley. To join one of these groups please follow this link, press the “join Landcare” button, and fill in your details. Under the drop down arrow (“which group are you joining”) select the relevant group you want to join.
