The Riverina Highlands Landcare Network (RHLN) is a Not for Profit community organisation based in Southern NSW. Our Network is proactively working with landholders and the community to care for our environment and support sustainable agriculture. Our area is geographically diverse ranging from sub-alpine areas north of Kosciuszcko National Park through to grazing and grain belts on the South-west Slopes and covers the local government areas of Tumut and Gundagai.

Projects

The Adjungbilly Creek is unique due to its populations of a number of endangered plants and animals. These include: • Macquarie Perch; • Booroolong Frog; • White Box-Yellow Box-Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodlands; and • Coolac-Tumut Serpentinite Shrubby Woodland

The Riverina Highlands Landcare Nursery provides locally grown native plants for Landcare and community projects and for sale to the general public.

Across our rural landscape, paddock trees stand out as an iconic image, providing shade and shelter for livestock and maintaining the productive capacity of the land. Paddock trees also provide an immense benefit to biodiversity by providing food, shelter and nesting sites for a large number of birds, bats, insects and small mammals. In recognising the importance of paddock trees on farms, the Riverina Highlands Landcare Network has funding available to landholders to protect and restore paddock trees.

The efforts of this group have recently been acknowledged in winning the Murrumbidgee Landcare Community Group Award and as a finalist in the NSW Landcare Awards.
