Landcare and Local Action Planning (LAP) groups enable communities, industry and government to work together to address the big issues of environmental degradation in the Murraylands and Riverland region. You can volunteer for a Landcare or LAP group, or speak with them about volunteering opportunities in their local area – contact a group in your area for more information.

Volunteering opportunities are available with the region’s community natural resource management centres – the Mt Pleasant Natural Resources Centre, the Strathalbyn Natural Resources Centre and the Lakes Hubs at Milang and Meningie.
Volunteer community groups
Volunteer groups operating in the region are involved in a range of activities, including revegetation, bush care, sustainable farming, wetland management and various monitoring activities.
Local groups operating in the region include Landcare Australia, Bush for Life and Friends of Parks.
