Land Care Groups are active in all areas of South Gippsland. Habitat needs to be created for our Native Wildlife, prevention of soil erosion, removing trees from paths after storms, clearing shrubs and removing excessive growth around homes and leaves in guttering prior to fire season, planting indigenous tree and flower species to enhance native bushland, preservation of habitat for our Australian Native Birds and many more activities are carried out by these committed community members.
For anyone who is interested in the protection of our native flora and fauna, please support them financially or find out what needs to be done in your own local town. Each area will have its own unique needs but the replanting of native species is an ongoing process. We all know the importance of leaving a legacy of hope for our future generations. Step lightly on our planet!
