Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare Group Inc. have been operating since 1995. We are a group of volunteers who carry out Landcare work in the community broadly defined by the catchment of the upper reaches of the Sturt River.
We have three main focuses:
- to provide support for our members and members of the local community in managing properties
- to run public meetings on current topics of mutual interest using speakers who have expertise in their field
- to carry out on-site works, promoting best practice in managing vegetation for biodiversity and for water quality.
We are a contact point for the local community and a conduit for government and Natural Resource Management Boards to the public. We operate on a limited budget, focusing on working as a community group to showcase best practice in environmental management.
We aim to provide a community focus for Landcare in the local community. We promote a Landcare ethic in the community through public educational activities, practical demonstrations of best practice, support for community members wishing to improve their environmental knowledge and practices, and by providing a link to other environmental organizations.
