Projects

Granite Borders Landcare have been successful in generating interest, understanding and involvement in natural resource management through the implementation of projects across the Tenterfield and Stanthorpe districts. Past projects include revegetation, pest animal management, weed management, strategic grazing, dung beetle trials, fertiliser trials, pasture management, soil health, riparian restoration, property planning as well as community education and engagement activities.
