Description

The Still Creek Catchment Landcare Group is now Up and Running. We are a new Group, incorporated in June 2008, set up to promote the merits of good Landcare Practice to the private Landholder. Membership is comprised of local landholders.

We are a non-profit community organisation and we have the support of a number of interested organisations such as the Hawkesbury Nepean Catchment Authority, Hornsby Shire Council, Oceanwatch Australia and The National Parks and Wildlife, to name a few.

Our Vision is a community brought together to provide a healthy catchment environment for our children and future generations.

Our Mission is to Inform the community in our catchment on the merits of protecting and improving our land and water quality for the benefit of all Land users.

Our objectives: - Drive land and water protection improvement projects - Raise the community’s awareness of the importance of a healthy catchment - Provide guidance to the community in sustainable land and water management

Our Actions: - Improve the catchment knowledge base - Plan the work to optimise benefits from our available resources - Communicate with the community and conduct improvement projects

Specific planned activities 2008/9 supported by a submission for government funding: - Survey community attitudes/ environmental knowledge - Built formal links with groups in the region - Devise targeted education material - Run a “Weed of the Year” Awareness Project - Survey the catchment by recording and collating information on water quality, flora, fauna and soil.

We are interested to hear what our local landholders and business are currently doing and find a scope for working together.
