Landcare means many things to many people. To some it is a symbol of the Australian Landcare movement – a partnership between environmental groups and land owner / occupiers.
To others it represents good sense, caring for our land, whether we are here for the view or to make ends meet.
Established in 1995, the Group focus was on serrated tussock, gorse and rabbits. In more recent times our horizons have extended to soil erosion, river water quality and preservation of native plant populations.
BHLG members are a mix of farmers and small block owners / occupiers of land on, or adjacent to, the Barrabool Hills. Which is a sandstone ridge extending westward from Geelong city towards the Western Districts.
