Upper Lachlan Landcare was formed by the Upper Lachlan Catchment Coordinating Committee to support Landcare activity in the Upper Lachlan Region and acts as the umbrella Landcare Group for the 12 Landcare Groups of the Upper Lachlan catchment.

By employing a part time Landcare coordinator Upper Lachlan Landcare is able to assist the local groups with events, projects, funding applications and brokering partnerships with Government and other agencies.
