Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare

Printer-friendly version
The city of Wagga Wagga and its surroundings are blessed with outstanding natural and cultural assets. This includes the famous Murrumbidgee River which forms a distinct river corridor through our city and offers a natural hub for recreational activity as well as our flora and fauna.
 
Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare seeks to play a role in the preservation and enhancement of the region’s natural assets. The Group’s efforts are focussed in four key areas: education, on-ground action, social enrichment and advocacy.
 
Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare is an active group that undertakes monthly events and activities throughout the year. Activities undertaken in 2016 included:
  • Leading Clean-up Australia Day at Flowerdale Lagoon (Wagga Wagga’s largest litter collection site for the event!)
  • Propagation workshops hosted at TAFE Riverina Institute
  • Contributing to the official opening of Marrambidya Wetlands
  • Co-delivering Wagga Wagga’s National Tree Day event in partnership with Wagga Wagga City Council
