South East Landscape Project

Do you want to learn how to restore your local patch, as well as our beautiful landscape here in Tasmania?

What is the South East Landscape Project?

The South East Landscape Project is all about restoration across an entire catchment, through involving the local community.

As a part of this project, Landcare Tasmania (with the help of our amazing volunteers) will plant over 7,000 plants this year, across 18 locations. These plantings range from recovery and protection of existing vegetation, and increasing biodiversity, to creating shelter for livestock. 

This project also includes 12 events held across the year, all with the aim of bringing our community together to learn important land management skills. These skills can be applied in the home garden, on the farm, and across whole landscapes. So far, we have held workshops about dung beetles, native seed propagation, plantation restoration, and revegetation.
