Our group was established in 1999 for the war on Spear Thistle which had spread from Tooradin to Lang Lang across farms of the Koo Wee Rup Swamp.
Our goals are to protect our assets of native vegetation, indigenous fauna, waterways, regenerative agriculture, people who value nature and cultural heritage.
A main aim is protecting the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot.
Another aim is supporting environmental education for students.
One of our long term aims is to assist the Healesville to Phillip Island Nature Link in creating a bio-link of national significance via natural corridors and waterways on public and private land.
Our activities include assisting Landcarers with fencing, stock shelter belts, wildlife corridors, revegetation, healthy soil and waterways, wildlife monitoring, weed and pest control. Members have improved properties by planting indigenous trees, shrubs and sedges. We have planted Swamp Scrub vegetation on farms and at Bandicoot Corner in Bayles to provide wildlife habitat.
We have applied for grants to conduct scientific wildlife camera surveys and reports. Members have restored the Lang Lang Primary School Arboretum as a special native reserve for students and the public where we hold working bees and BugBlitz sessions.
We are part of the Westernport Catchment Landcare Network and regularly attend information sessions and farm field days.
