Taree Landcare began in 1993 when a public meeting was called to ask residents to form a landcare group. Over the last ten years, Taree Landcare received state and federal grants to revegetate public lands in the Taree area. Considerable plantings were completed at Browns Creek, Andrews Reserve and Manning Waters. More recently, Taree Landcare has been planting at Kolodong Industrial Estate. We always work with a qualified bush regenerator who supervises volunteers, prepares the site for us, and does follow-up watering and weeding. At present we have a group of fifteen local residents. Our focus is on planting in riparian areas and planting species of trees and shrubs endemic to the Manning area. We welcome new members. Taree Landcare is auspiced by Manning Landcare and supported also by Greater Taree City Council.

We meet on the second Sunday of each month from 9am to 11.30am. Our focus is to create, for the future, areas o refuge for native fauna andhabitats  of native flora, especially the Endangered Lowland Rainforest.

We welcome new members. Phone Helen on 02 6552 3813.


Taree landcare maintains a number of sites where we have done extensive plantings since 2005. They are at Andrews Reserve, southwest of Manning Waters Residential Estate, Kolodong Industrial Estate and a River Street site. All these adjoin a wetland or are next to the Manning River. This work involves weeding and new plantings. In October 2014 Taree landcare intends to start work at William Wynter Park. The park is at Taree West off Edinburgh Drive and adjoins 'Taree Gardens" retirement centre. There is a wetland area which drains into the Manning River. Planting and weeding will be the main activities. At the end of each working bee we will have a cup of tea together and discuss land care and any other things of interest with like minded people. Please come and join us.
