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

Clean Up Australia Day, 2024


Step Up to Clean Up with Helensburgh & District Landcare Group


Clean Up Australia Day is on Sunday 3 March, and we aim to clean up Helensburgh’s footpaths, creeks and parks. Register at the Old Mine Surgery, 78 Parkes Street, Helensburgh, between 10 am and 1 pm. 

We provide you with a bag to clean up an area of your own choice – your own street, the park across the road, local creeks, etc. Once you have finished, return the bag of rubbish.

Please wear long pants and shirt, sturdy closed-in shoes, and bring gloves and water.
