Are you concerned about the environment?
Do you want to do your bit to preserve our natural environment for coming generations?
Let’s face it: Our fragile environment is under pressure from today’s fast paced, all-consuming way of life. In the middle of all this, a group of people just like you are working to help maintain the balance, by becoming involved, and thinking about their actions every day and what impact they have. People just like you are joining Landcare. The Tamworth Regional Landcare Association (TRLA) is a community of ordinary people, who are working together to maintain the health of our local environment, and make a real difference to the future of our planet.
Landcare is a uniquely Australian partnership between community, government and business working to protect and repair our natural resources. There are around 6,000 Landcare volunteers doing their part across Australia. The Tamworth Regional Landcare Association (TRLA) is the peak Landcare association in our region, and includes the Peel River and adjacent catchment areas. We work to support local Landcare groups with on-the-ground works for biodiversity restoration and conservation as well as promoting education, communication and sustainability.
You can help
There are many ways to get involved with TRLA. You can become a member, volunteer your time, or become a financial supporter. TRLA achieves great things with donations from corporations and individuals. If you really can’t give time, consider making a cash donation. Even small, regular donations can make a great big difference for our work.
