Landcare is a non-governmental community movement dedicated to preventing land degradation and achieving sustainable land management. It consists of a network of local volunteer groups of which there are over 1700 in New South Wales alone. Each group works to find local solutions to local problems such as salinity, soil degradation, animal pests, weeds, vegetation loss, waterside erosion, poor water quality, coastal degradation and urban land degradation. If you appreciate how lucky we are in the Helensburgh district to enjoy a relatively unspoiled bush environment you should also be aware that it is under serious threat. read more

Frogs in the Illawarra

 Frogs of the IllawarraHave you ever seen a frog in your garden and wondered what kind of frog it was? Would you like to know more about how to
make your garden frog-friendly?
In response to community demand for this information, the Illawarra Councils are pleased to introduce the new 'Frogs of the Illawarra' brochure.
More than thirty frog species have been identified in the Illawarra region, and this brochure includes a fantastic colour poster
showcasing sixteen local frog species.
