Scrub Road Landcare Group
Scrub Road Landcare Group is a group of landholders in the Tenterfield Creek Scrub Road catchment area who with assistance from Granite Borders Landcare, commenced Community Action Planning in 2015. The Group has documented the issues of concern in their area, determined community engagement activities and have developed appropriate projects with funding assistance through Northern Tablelands Local Land Services. Ground work has been undertaken to protect riparian areas.
The Scrub Road Landcare Group is also a Study Group working with UNE Armidale to provide information on the "Collaborative approach between Landcare and NTLLS and the benefits of landholder group action plnning."
The Group consists of 46 individuals, covering 27 properties over 4,436 ha.
A number of properties in the area have received funding in the past for projects such as off-stream watering points and gully/creek erosion.
The objectives of the Group include:-
- Maintain a representative group in the sub-catchment area;
- Promote the Scrub Road Landcare Group to other landholders to increase this co-ordinated and co-operative approach to natural resource management;
- GBLC is to provide land managers with support, facilitate NRM improvements and actively source funds for activities;
- Develope projects to ensure any future funding opportunities to assist landholder NRM projects are not missed.
