The Southern Highlands Landcare Network (SHLN) is an independent, not-for-profit network that aims to support landcare and other environmental groups and individuals with a common purpose to work together in the Southern Highlands to care for the environment.


The Oxley College Landcare Group began rivercare activities in 1989 and continued with a range of projects and improvements to the riparian area until 2011. In 2019 Wingecarribee Shire Council established the Burradoo Rivercare Group.

The Wingecarribee Community Nursery was established by Wingecarribee Shire Council in 2007 to provide Bushcare and Landcare Groups the opportunity to grow endemic plants for their various on-ground revegetation and rehabilitation projects.

This project is raising awareness of Glossy Black Cockatoos and improving their habitat across the 'Great Western Wildlife Corridor' in the Southern Highlands.
