About Hunter Region Landcare

The Hunter Region Landcare Network (HRLN) was formed in 1998 as a voluntary association of Landcare groups in the Upper and Lower Hunter, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens regions.

Our Purpose

The Hunter Region Landcare Network (HRLN) supports the Landcare community in working to improve the natural environment of the Hunter Region. The network is a collective voice that represents the Landcare community at a local, state and national level. The HRLN encourages and facilitates effective coordination of resources, information and ideas across the Hunter Region to support and celebrate practical Landcare solutions to local natural resource management problems.

The aims of the network are to facilitate field days and workshops, share knowledge and resources, promote funding opportunities, showcase local projects, and celebrate landcare community achievements.

As a network we work collaboratively with Hunter Local Land Services (NSW Government), and Landcare NSW.

About Our Region

Landcare in the Hunter Region includes Landcare, Bushcare, Coastcare, Wetlandcare and Friends of groups, all working under the Landcare banner, on public and private lands, in just about every corner of our region and on just about every landform and land use.

The region is unique in the diversity of its vegetation and landscapes, which include the alpine rainforests of the World Heritage Barrington Tops, the dissected sandstone of the Great Dividing Range, the open grasslands and woodlands of the Upper Hunter, and the rich alluvial floodplains, estuarine wetlands, the coastal environment and mangrove forests of the Lower Hunter.

The region supports a range of land uses including mining, power generation, agriculture, tourism, horticulture, forestry and farming.
