Bubbogullion 100 Landcare

This Landcare group is centred on the agricultural district surrounding Attunga and Somerton with Landcare activities focusing on improving both the environment and agricultural production. Bubbogullion 100 Landcare was formed in 1994 and meets bimonthly. These meetings alternate between a weeknight and a weekend get-together.

Past projects have included: building flumes and dams to improve water flow and prevent erosion, including fencing areas to restrict stock intrusion; mass plantings of native trees to create shelter belts and wildlife corridors; incorporating direct drilling into sowing regimes and continuing eradication of Coolatai grass. Workshops have been hosted on growing tropical pasture grasses and strategies to better control the invasion of feral pigs. Sheep producers are participating in ongoing production-enhancing workshops and nesting boxes are being added to tree plantings to attract native birds and mammals.

Members regularly attend other workshops on soils, adapting to climate change, pasture productivity, wildlife conservation etc and provide feedback at meetings. The group and its members have a history of success in attracting and fulfilling requirements of government grants.

Bubbogullion 100 has achieved longterm success through its meeting model and a history of effective office-bearers.

Have your say on pest animal management in the North West

The Regional Strategic Pest Animal Plans are now out for public consultation.

LLS is asking landholders and the community to give their feedback on the draft 2024-2028 North West Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan. 

The plan will help us work together to identify, target and manage pest animals over the next 5 years. It will guide on-ground activities and programs to reduce the impact of pest animals on the environment, farming and productivity. 

Our members often say that when you become part of Landcare, you’re not just joining a group, you’re becoming part of a family. The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.
