About our group
Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare seeks to play a role in the preservation and enhancement of our region’s natural assets. Formed in 1994, we cover a broad range of natural resource activities, including wetland rehabilitation, riparian restoration, native animal habitat enhancement, weed control, waste minimisation, and many other initiatives that lead to a smaller ecological footprint for our community. 
Our activities
We have activities every month, focussing on the following areas:
  • Enrichment: We aim to keep participation in our group interesting by offering a range of social, educational and recreational activities. Some examples include outdoor movie nights, exploring the wildflowers of Galore Hill and enjoying a family BBQ at Wagga Beach;
  • On-ground action: We undertake on-ground activities that will protect and enhance the Wagga Wagga region’s natural assets. Activities include a clean-up at Kohlhagens Reserve, weed removal at Willans Hill, various planting days and working bees at Wilks Park;
  • Advocacy and Engagement: We take an active interest in decisions that impact our region’s natural assets, and aim to generate greater community awareness in this area.

Our legacy

The Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare Group was first formed in September 1994 following a public meeting convened to discuss urban salinity. Saline watertables were beginning to cause serious problems in Wagga Wagga and the potential to cause further deterioration to both public and private property was regarded as substantial. The city was experiencing damage to recreational areas, roads, and infrastructure such as drainage and sewerage pipes.
