Maclean Landcare is now an incorporated group, with a new constitution, and an enthusiastic membership of twenty five. 
Our mission is the rehabilitation and preservation of remnant native vegetation in the Maclean area.

  • Rehabilitation of and care for native flora and fauna;
  • Establishment of native wildlife corridors;
  • Respect for and preservation of all Aboriginal sites in the area;

We collect and store seed, as part of the Clarence Native Seed Network. We conduct Workshops and give out information about native plants and invasive weeds.

See the latest community education projects here - Australian Native Plant Factsheets and, in latest news, our new species signs at the Community Nursery.

We are actively rehabilitating the bushland on the Maclean Lookout Reserve every Thursday morning from 7:00am – 9:00am, removing invasive weeds.


A team of volunteers manage the Clarence Valley Council’s Community Nursery in Ironbark Drive, Townsend.

We propagate a range of local native species, which are for sale to the public, and are given free to local Landcare groups who are actively engaged in re-vegetation projects in the Clarence Valley.

The nursery is open to the public every Thursday 9:30am – 11:30am, and Friday from 7:30am – 11:30am.

Follow our activities on Facebook, and come and meet us at either of these locations to learn more about us, and what we do.
