The Strath Creek Landcare area broadly covers the Strath and lower King Parrot Creek catchments, known locally as the ‘Valley of a Thousand Hills’.
The Landcare group comprises more than sixty households (about 110 members) mainly from Strath Creek and Flowerdale (although anyone is welcome to join or participate!). Throughout the year they are involved in a variety of activities including tree plantings, platypus surveys, spotlight walks, National Tree Day, information nights, wildflower walks, weed removal and Cleanup Australia Day on both private property and public lands. In addition the group is actively involved in funded projects such as the Strath Creek Biodiversity Project, the aim of which, amongst other things, is to create wildlife corridors within the King Parrot Creek catchment.
Activities are very social and inevitably end up with the consumption of good food and wine. So if you want to get your hands dirty, your feet wet or just want some good company in the majestic outdoors that is the Valley of a Thousand Hills, come along and join us. Contact details are on this website.
“To protect and enhance the local environment for future generations; to promote sustainable land management practices; and above all, to foster a sense of community.”
