The National Landcare Network

National representation for Landcare and other community groups working to protect our lands and waters.

The National Landcare Network (NLN) is the representative body for Landcare groups across Australia and works to provide a voice for Landcare at the national level.

The NLN is made up of representatives from each State and Territory, who come together to share their successes and support one another in overcoming challenges.

We aim to tell a collective story that reflects the shared experiences of Landcarers across Australia, and advocate for the Landcare movement to enable it to continue its essential work building resilient and productive landscapes, and protecting our natural environment.
