Happy Holidays from Landcare Tasmania
What a year! Enjoy these photos re-capping some great Landcaring moments across the state.
Our office will be closed from 24 Dec 2020, reopening on 11 Jan 2021. We wish you, your families, and communities a safe and restful holiday season.
And as always, but particularly in a year that saw household waste increase by 20%, let's all help to look after the land by being mindful of the waste we produce.
It's that time of year again... If you are a member, but did not receive a Membership Renewal Notification email, check your junk mail, or simply log into your online account to renew. Be sure to use the email address registered for your group or individual membership to log in.
LAP Grant Acquittals are also due now. You can find the acquittal form in your group's online account.

Welcome to our new Member Groups
Community Landcare is continuing to grow!

They're contributing to our vision for all the land and coasts of Tassie to be cared for by the community. Join them if they are in your area!
