Upper Lachlan Landcare recognises the important role the next generation holds in caring for our landscape.

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”

We want to support and encourage our younger generations as they learn about the environment and their role in caring for it.

We have a variety of pathways to connect with school aged students, including;

  • Community and school Tree Planting Days
  • Primary School student engagement project – 2020 theme is growing trees!
  • School Holiday Activities in partnership with Upper Lachlan Shire Library, Gunning District Landcare, Crookwell CWA Evening Branch and Gullen Range Wind Farm
  • Topical School Talks/Visits

Upper Lachlan Landcare believes by fostering a respect and love for our natural environment, we increase our community’s capacity to care for our landscape in the longer term.

Below we have some simple activities you can get busy with anytime!

Explore Your Local Bushland – this activity gets you out into a patch of local bush or even your own backyard. Explore and record what you see. As you return to your site and/or visit new sites, you will build your bank of knowledge about the wide and exciting variety of creatures who live all around us!

Getting to Know our Threatened Local Species – Southern Tablelands Arts have put together some beautiful information pages on some of our precious creatures who are currently under threat due to habitat loss, predation by feral animals, or both!
