Landcare volunteers undertake a variety of natural resource management activities including bush regeneration, dune stabilisation, mulching, collection and propagation of seed of indigenous plants for Landcare sites, planting and recording of local flora and fauna.
The City of Newcastle Landcare and the Hunter Region Landcare Network formed an alliance in 2009 starting with a Memorandum of Understanding to work together for the benefit of our natural areas and for Landcarers across the Hunter region.
We now work together on funding opportunities, workshops, collaborative projects and social gatherings for Landcarers.
To find out more about the HRLN, view their website, become a member, or sign up for their newsletter.
The City of Newcastle Landcare volunteers will receive:
- Free training and guidance from council officers
- Resources such as tools and plants, mulch and signage
- Safety gear and insurance cover whilst working on council land
- A bbq party and awards each year to celebrate volunteering and achievements.
