Nicole Maher


My name is Nicole Maher and I am the Regional Landcare Coordinator for the Riverina region. I am hosted by Murrumbidgee Landcare, and based at Wagga Wagga. I live on a small property at Downside with my three young kids and my fabulous husband (who is also a keen Landcarer!)

I have a background in sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, and worked in technical and research roles for a few years before coming to Murrumbidgee Landcare nine years ago. 

My goals as a Regional Landcare Coordinator:

  • Share information with the Landcare community through our website and social media, and a monthly e-newsletter (sign up to our newsletter here!)
  • Promote Landcare and our achievements by working with the media and developing case studies and reports
  • Work with schools, pre-schools and and youth groups to get kids involved in Landcare, and help them develop a love and respect for nature
  • Collaborate with the many other groups in our region (including Councils, research bodies, government departments, agri-businesses, industry associations and community groups), to work together to achieve better NRM outcomes
  • Support our Local Landcare Coordinators and Landcare groups to develop and deliver successful projects.

I am continually inspired by the dedication and commitment shown by Landcare members, and the amazing ways in which our Landcare groups create real improvements to our local environment!
