The Upper Snowy Landcare Network acts as an umbrella group to Landcare groups in the central Monaro region as well as running projects under its own steam. The committee works together to lead and encourage strategies to improve natural resource management in the Upper Snowy by sharing information, skills, experience and support across Landcare groups.
The main natural resource issues the committee focuses on are:
- tree dieback
- weed invasion
- river rehabilitation
- soil health
- stream bank and gully erosion
Office bearers (as of the AGM held on 19 August September 2019) for the Upper Snowy Landcare Network are:
