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.

The Landcare Group members of YAN are:
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.

With respect and gratitude, we acknowledge the First Nations Peoples of Australia, the oldest surviving culture on Earth - Traditional Custodians living on Country for tens of thousands of years, profoundly connected to the waterways, skies and land upon which we live and learn today. We pay our deepest respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and strive to stand together into our shared future.
