Queensland Water & Land Carers

Queensland Water and Land Carers (QWaLC) is the peak body for natural resource management (NRM) volunteers. QWaLC’s roles include representation, advocacy, promotion, networking and insurance administration. QWaLC’s board includes representatives from each of Queensland’s regions. Our membership consists of almost 500 groups who have around 40,000 individual members.

“We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where we meet, pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and we acknowledge the important and practical role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within communities both in Queensland and across the nation.”
