MALLEE REGIONAL LANDCARE NETWORK
The Mallee Regional Landcare Program has been running since the late 1980s, with 28 active Landcare groups located in the Mallee Catchment Management Authority region of Victoria. Landcare groups in the Mallee maintain some form of regular activity and continue to undertake a wide range of activities in community development and natural resource management.
From our first Landcare group, Millewa Carwarp (established 1988), to the newest Robinvale Indiginous Landcare Group (established 2011), Landcare in the Mallee has played an instrumental role in proactively managing our natural resources in both the dryland and irrigated areas.Many groups formed due to the issues of rabbits and weeds initially. Salinity, soil conservation and biodiversity issues have evolved and continued to propel the Landcare movement into the 21st century.
