The Yass Area Network of Landcare Groups (YAN)

Landcare is a national community-based movement driven by volunteers around Australia who are working to improve their local environment.
Landcare activities are diverse, and include things such as: creating more productive and sustainable farms, improving water quality, addressing erosion and salinity problems, improving biodiversity and soil health, addressing the loss of Australian wildlife, and adapting to the effects of climate change through the native plants grown across our Landcare plant nurseries.

Within the Yass area there are five active Landcare groups. All maintain an active program and welcome new members.

In addition, YAN maintains a close relationship with neighbouring Landcare groups and networks.  

YAN sponsors group and regional Landcare awards - one of which is the John Betts Award.
