Little River Landcare (LRLG) is not a traditional Landcare Group. We are innovative and highly professional in the delivery of Landcare activities. We have a membership of 490 individuals and 180 farming businesses.
LRLG focuses on the three main components that promote the health of the 320,000ha of the Little River catchment. These are: environment; social – community member wellbeing and; the economy in our local communities.
LRLG’s objective is to build strength in all of these areas. LRLG will only achieve sound environmental and healthy community outcomes when it is holistic in its approach.
Since our inception in 1998, we have secured and delivered in excess of $10 million in project value. These projects have included extensive tree planting to combat salinity and erosion; restoration of creek and rivers systems, improved grazing and cropping methods used by farmers to protect soil and increase biodiversity, climate change programs and extensive educational delivery.
For each dollar we receive in project grant funds in excess of 90% is spent on education and on-ground works.
