Burra Landcare has ceased operation

At its AGM on 4th August 2020 Burra Landcare resolved to cease all operations and to close, effective immediately.  At the time of the AGM, Landcare had only 5 financial members and opportunities to attract more interest looked bleak.  Landcare has transferred all of its funds to the Burra Community Association (BCA) and the BCA has agreed to use these funds for Landcare-related activities.  More information is available in the September 2020 issue of The Intermittent.

Landcare Aims

Burra Landcare aims to enhance the biodiversity of the Burra and Urila areas and surrounds through the protection and enhancement of the natural environment.

The Burra and Urila area contains a number of ecological communities, including grassy box woodlands and grassland communities, which are classed as Regionally Endangered in the Murrumbidgee/Molonglo catchments.  There is less than 10% of this type of vegetation left.  Our projects aim to address the following issues:

  • Enhancing local indigenous fauna and flora and avoiding loss of biodiversity
  • Preserving and enhancing remnant grassy woodland
  • Establishing linking wildlife corridors
  • Raising community awareness & education about sustainable land management e.g.
    • responsible grazing techniques
    • erosion and weed control
    • caring for native ecosystems.
