The Landcare program aims to protect agricultural and natural resource assets vital to the future of our region. Funding incentives are now available to assist land managers in the Bass Coast Landcare Network area to undertake on-ground works and training. The incentives are designed to support private landholders who wish to address land management on their farms. Benefits can include the increased stability and viability of soils, gains in the productivity of your property and increased land values. Some Landcare Groups also undertake works to protect natural areas on public land and welcome volunteer assistance from community members.
