The Upper-Shoalhaven Landcare Council is an incorporated association of Landcare volunteers with a mission to promote and support Landcare throughout the Upper-Shoalhaven and Upper-Deua catchments. We recognise the diversity of people, land-use and landscapes in our local areas and strive to provide an inclusive approach to all members of our local community.
We work to help local Landcare groups and individual landholders throughout the catchment to create and maintain healthy and productive landscapes. We strive to build cooperative relations with other organisations working within our region to provide beneficial outcomes for our members and the wider Upper-Shoalhaven community. We provide community representation and oversight on a diverse range of projects and services being delivered in our area.
Upper Shoalhaven Landcare Council is an association dedicated to including a range of views on landscape management, on conservation, and on farming within our approaches and activities. As of December 2016 our executive committee members are:
- Ben Gleeson (President)
- Phil Shoemark (Vice President)
- Sarah Merriman (Secretary)
- Ryan Lungu (Treasurer)
- Ken Moran (Ordinary Member)
