Regional & Local Landcare Coordinators

Regional Landcare Coordinators and Local Landcare Coordinators supported by the 2019-23 NSW Landcare Program

The backbone of the Program is its network of Local Coordinators and Regional Coordinators. Hosted by local organisations such as Landcare groups, Councils and industry organisations, they are a key resource that underpin local and regional communities of practice and the capacity of Landcarers to participate in on ground actions.

They share resources and knowledge, they foster efficient and flexible responses to current issues, and support the coordination of local and regional activates and partnerships. The Regional Landcare Coordinators play an important role in growing the effectiveness of the network of Local Coordinators. They are a separate, but complementary role, to the federally funded Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitators and other support structures in the Landcare space.
