Many environmental problems face us today. Members of Echuca Landcare Group are working toward enhancing our local natural environment.

Echuca is located alongside the Murray and Campaspe Rives in northern Victoria, Australia. Its twin, Moama, is located on the New South Wales side of the Murray River. In August 2014, Echuca Landcare Group and Moama Landcare group merged to become Echuca Moama Landcare Group.

The group usually meets each month to plan activities. Working Bees and outings are held from time to time.

New members are welcome!

The work of Echuca Moama Landcare Group includes revegetation work, the planting and promotion of plants native to our area, advising on ways of dealing with Fruit Fly infestation, removal of woody weeds and Bridal Creeper ionfestations, recording of Platypus sightings, rubbish removal from public land and promoting environmental awareness. Much of our revegetation work, rubbish removal and weed removal work is along the Northern Highway, along the lower stretches of the Campaspe River and in local bushland, including rubbish removal in Banyula Forest.

Shinbone Alley project deferred indefinitely
Echuca Landcare Group has deferred action on the Banyula Forest/Shinbone Alley project at least until the management body for the area becomes clear.

Echuca-Moama Branch of Australian Plant Society
A group of residents interested in the propagation and promotion of Australian plants has formed a branch of the Australian Plaint Society in Echuca-Moama. The group usually meets from 7.30pm in the Echuca library on the last Thursday of most months.

Landcare Victoria
A few years ago, to give the group greater autonomy, Echuca Moama Landcare Group became an affiliate of the Farm Tree and Landcare Association (FTLA). The FTLA recently merged with Landcare committee to form Landcare Victoria Inc.

Landcare Victoria is an independent incorporated association governed by its members. It caters for groups and individuals involved in Landcare, tree planting and similar land management and conservation activities. The FTLA was stablished in 1986 at the start of Landcare, and, at the time of the merger, had over 500 Member Groups, including Landcare, Farm Tree, Climate Action and Friends Of groups etc.

Landcare Victoria exists to serve the Member Groups and supports Member Groups where issues arise that are common across the membership, most notably its insurance package which is provided as a membership benefit.
