The Landcare movement is a major contributor to the achievement of the Mallee's Regional Catchment Strategy outcomes, with 27 Landcare groups operating across the region as part of the Mallee Regional Landcare Network.
The results of this Landcare effort can be seen in many areas such as the fencing-off and revegetation of land and waterways, protection of remnant vegetation, establishment of windbreaks and corridors across farms, rabbit and weed infestation control works, and the establishment of perennial pastures for soil conservation and salinity prevention.
The Mallee CMA provides support to Landcare groups in the region, in line with the Mallee Regional Landcare Support Strategy.
