Did you know that Landcare Tasmania (formerly known as Tasmania Landcare Incorporated/TLCA) was the first independent peak body for Landcare in Australia? Established nearly 30 years ago in 1994, this is our story- from the beginning to now.
1996- Paint it Red
We began our Red Tree campaign, which represented the decline in trees in the midlands.
1997- Our First Conference
This year, we held our first Statewide Tasmanian Landcare Conference and Awards in Deloraine, with the theme 'Landcare: Not Just Trees'.
2003- Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF) Established
in 2003, Mr. John Roberts started an ongoing donation, which inspired us to create a fund for donations- which is still in place today.
2006- Many hands make light work
We launched our 'Extra Hands Program'. which connected landowners to volunteers- a service that Landcare continues to provide to this day.
2012- New Name, New Logo
In 2012, the TLCA changed it's name and logo to the current one you know and love- Landcare Tasmania.
2017- Half a million dollars of project funding from the TLF!
In 2017, we celebrated having provided $500,000 in funding to various projects across the state through the TLF.
2022- We're currently working on our forth landscape-scale project: The South East Landscape Project.
Exciting things are happening! Stay tuned.
