Landcare in the Gympie Region
Gympie and District Landcare Group was formed in 1988, incorporated in 1991 and is a registered charitable not-for-profit organisation.
“Gympie District Landcare Group is active within the Gympie Region”
The Group works alongside Council, landholders and other organisations to promote sustainable land use as well as the maintenance of our diverse environments. This includes prevention and control of erosion, weed control, revegetation, soil health, grazing, forestry and farm trees and horticulture and well as the natural environment.
The local community can access information at Landcare’s nursery and at information booths at community events throughout the region. Speakers are available for school and community activities. Field days, workshops and seminars are held regularly throughout the year.
Local land and bush caring:
Members actively work with neighbourhood groups to support bush care at Messmate Park Kia Ora; weed removal and revegetation of the urban reach of the Mary River; viney weed control; and to encourage the community to lend a hand with tree planting and revegetation activities throughout the region.
Advice and Information exchange:
Sharing experience with other members or linking with technical experts can help you manage your property, improve productivity, strengthen habitat values or revegetate riparian areas.
New members and volunteers are always welcome.
