Wilsons Creek Huonbrook Landcare Group is a group of landholders who have made a commitment to repairing and enhancing the natural landscape in the Wilsons Creek, Huonbrook and Wanganui valleys within the Byron Bay hinterland of Northern New South Wales. Our valleys here contain 50% of the remaining rainforest within the Byron Shire (Byron Flora & Fauna Study 1999). The group is a not-for-profit organisation and is affiliated with Richmond Landcare Incorporated. On 8th March 2004 the Landcare group became an Incorporated Association. There are now in excess of 60 individual landholders within the valleys who are engaged in various landscape repair activities. The landcare group is able to provide a supportive environment by way of technical and scientific expertise, and also physical and financial resources. Landholders are encouraged to prepare individual project plans which are consistent with the overall landscape repair program which the group utilises in their submissions for assistance. The community is now developing an inspiring "whole of landscape" perspective and a real sense of ownership. Wilsons Creek/Huonbrook Landcare Group works on riparian restoration projects and general revegetation activities. The Landcare group relies on volunteers for work days, community projects, administration and fundraising activities. The group hosts social functions, field days, educational sessions and workshops. A quarterly newsletter is distributed to the community (300 households). Members of the group attend training sessions and conferences, bringing new skills and information back to the group.
