Who we are

 Landcare SJ Inc is a non profit community community based organisation that coordinates landcare, bushcare and catchment care in the districts of Serpentine Jarrahdale and North Murray.

In partnership with other groups and landholders in the community, we develop and enact programs to achieve:

 A reversal in land degradation;
Promotion of best land management;
Conservation and restoration of habitat for native flora and fauna.

 Improvement of water quality in river systems, drains and wetlands.

We also provide opportunities, resources and support for landholders and community groups to improve their skills and knowledge in the management of natural resources.

Landcare staff welcome visitors to the Landcare Centre in the old school building in Mundijong.

 

Our Community

We support community groups throughout the districts of Serpentine Jarrahdale and North Murray.

We assist these groups in carrying out on-ground environmental restoration in natural areas such as bushland reserves and along waterways.

This includes providing technical assistance with advice and accessing resources and funding.
