As of 2020 there are over 260 Member Groups and Individual Members across the state with 4,500 volunteers doing about 135,000 volunteer hours in 2019. We have many local councils who are dedicated to helping their local Landcare groups thrive, both officially and unofficially.
If you run a group, or want to start a group in these areas you could get a lot of support from your local council to succeed in your group's goals.
Member Groups of Landcare Tasmania can be included in the Landcare Bulk Insurance policy, which can cover a range of volunteer activities you and your group may be doing. Check out the details here.
How you set up, run and communicate in your group is important for both Landcare Tasmania and you and your group. Check out this handy guide with examples of how to set your group up for success.
