Tweed Landcare supports people caring for the environment and natural resources of the Tweed. We provide information, training, project coordination, advocacy and representation for our members, locality groups, landholders and community.
The Tweed Valley has an incredibly rich flora and fauna, with more species of fish, birds, amphibians and mammals than Kakadu. The region has many threatened fauna species, and Australia's highest concentration of threatened plants.
Committed volunteers and landowners in the local Landcare network are working to protect and rehabilitate this precious landscape. TLI was formed as an incorporated group in 1997 to promote Landcare in the Tweed Valley.
There are a number of on-ground projects with which TLI is working throughout the Tweed Valley, either as a sponsor organisation for individuals and groups, a project partner or as the applicant. If you would like to become involved with any of these let us know.
Sponsorship of Grant Applications
We have sponsored grant applications for many groups and individuals. If you need a sponsor organisation or help with your grant application come along to the monthly meeting or contact the Landcare Coordinator or Landcare Officer.
Information and Education
We hold Landcare displays at community events, workshops and field days, contribute articles to local media and promote awareness of biodiversity.
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 5.30pm at the Panorama Room (upstairs Courthouse Hotel, Murwillumbah). These are an opportunity to keep up to date with TLI activities, hear interesting guest speakers and share your views. Please feel welcome to attend.
