The issue

As a Landcare coordinator, I often feel the need to take a leadership and organisation role in every project undertaken. Stepping back, taking stock of the incredible work surrounding you and then supporting their work through your own capacity is just as useful. 

The solution

Here are just a few projects we've supported:

  • Kanangra to Wyangala (K2W) Glideways BioBlitz at Jenolan Caves with Sydney University Intrepid Landcare and the Goulburn Yass Landcare Group
  • Capertee Regent Honeyeater project with Capertee Valley Landcare and Lithgow Landcare Network
  • We've showcased the work of our members too, such as Megalong Valley Public School, CHEN, Sydney Naturalists and the incredible Bushcare and Landcare wins throughout Sydney
  • We've supported several members who have become exceptional community leaders in their own events

The impact

  • The Capertee regent honeyeater project, one long weekend, planted 500 trees and watered > 3,500
  • Thirty volunteers worked as guides, gophers and ad-hoc helpers across the K2W Glideways BioBlitz weekend, assisting ecological professionals to conduct valuable citizen science work 
  • Our Get Your Hands Dirty bushcare event (NPWS and GSLN) attracted more than 40 applications
  • We've shared and jointly hosted NRM and farming workshops with Penrith LLS
  • We've helped members host their own micro-Blitzes (bats), surveys and bushcare events 
  • And, we've shared, supported, nominated and helped with PR of the incredible work of our members - including the conservation work and film of Megalong Valley Public School

Key facts

  • Worked with more than 20 partners; Watered more than 10,000 trees!; Supported more than 30 projects and collaborations, and shared countless more!... And we've gained approximatley 200 Facebook likes and follows, and another 20 mail subscriptions in the last six months alone as a result of our sharing and collaborating!
