The Phillip Island Landcare Group was one of Australia’s first Landcare groups, established in 1987, replacing the Phillip Island Farm Tree Group. The group conducts revegetation projects under the banner of the Phillip Island Wildlife Corridor, has an Urban Landcare Program and works closely with other partners to maintain and improve the Island’s unique natural assets from weeds and pest animals.
A healthy informed community working together to sustain a resilient, productive and biodiverse landscape on Phillip Island and beyond.
