Lismore Land Protection Group (Landcare)

Crew laying netting to restrict rabbits on Mount Elephant.

The Lismore Land Protection Group (LLPG) works in conjunction with other community groups to form a network 50 km across. 

Member groups include Mount Elephant Community Management, Cundare Duverney Landcare Group, Leslie Manor Landcare Group, Weering-Eurack Landcare Group and Weerite Landcare Group.

The LLPG area contains one of the most depleted and least represented ecosystem types in Victoria (Natural Temperate Grassland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain). The Lake Corangamite Drainage basin contains many highly diverse and nationally significant wetlands and lakes, of which seven are listed under the RAMSAR convention for migratory birds.

Landcare issues tackled by the LLPG  include salinity discharge management, perennial pasture establishment, waterway protection and revegetation, woodlot establishment, biodiversity shelterbelts, threatened species protection and habitat restoration, soil health projects using biological

methods. A recent project is to involve schools and families in the appreciation of native grasslands, birdlife and waterway health. The Group runs workshops, field days and training courses, develops education material and produces monthly newsletters.

LLPG newsletters and activities can be accessed on the Landcare Gateway website: https://www.landcarevic.org.au/groups/corangamite/lismore-land-protn/

LLPG also runs a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LLPGLandcare
