Huon Valley Care Groups

The Huon Valley Council allocates funding every year to support, maintain and advance the Huon Valley’s care network.

The network aims to protect and improve the ecological balance and water quality of the Huon region, and includes Landcare, Bushcare, Coastcare, Rivercare, ‘Friends of’ and Waterwatch groups, as well as schools, community groups and individuals.

The groups work across a variety of land tenures, including council reserves, crown land, private land and school grounds. Volunteers work together on projects such as weeding, planting, collecting and propagating native seeds, walking track construction and maintenance, water quality monitoring, community education, protection of Aboriginal heritage sites, and flora and fauna surveys.

Other Care group support includes access to professional advice, native plants, equipment loans and an annual grant round of up to $4000 to support environmental projects.

Care Groups are often looking for new volunteers, if you are interested contact the group directly.
