Volunteers – How to Get Involved

Naturally Together

The Landcare movement is about people with passion working together to make a difference to local landscapes.

The Landcare community includes all groups who care for their local environment, including Landcare, Coastcare, Waterwatch, Bushcare, Catchment associations, wildlife protection, community gardens, conservation groups and regional and sub-regional organisations.

If you are interested in getting involved in Landcare, we recommend following these steps:

  1. Investigate if there is a Landcare group near you. Check out our Member Group Map below to see which groups are in your area. They are always welcoming new volunteers and members.
  2. If there aren’t any member groups close by, contact our Executive Officer on info@qwalc.org.au to see if any non-member groups are in your area.
  3. If we can’t locate a non-member group near you, consider forming your own group! Follow our instructions on how to form your own Landcare group by clicking here and there are lots more factsheets and policiy templates in our Landcare in a Box resources.  Feel free to reach out to our Executive Officer for help in this process.

Feel free to get in touch with of any of the groups to find out how you can get involved. You could be invited to participate in habitat restoration, waterway protection, weed management, tree planting, wildlife protection, citizen science and cultural site maintenance – to name a few. Whatever it is you get involved in you’ll find a warm welcome within the Landcare community.
