What is the Greater Sydney Landcare Network?
Incorporated in 2014, the Greater Sydney Landcare Network (GSLN) is a membership-based community organisation that aims to support individuals and groups who are working to protect, restore and improve the natural environment of Greater Sydney.
Our region includes metropolitan Sydney, greater western Sydney, the Central Coast and Blue Mountains.
What are the aims and objectives of the Greater Sydney Landcare Network?
Representation: The Greater Sydney Landcare Network aims to be the regional umbrella organisation for landcare, bushcare and other ‘care’ groups and individuals in Greater Sydney.
This means we can be a regional voice, representing our member’s interests at the State and National level.
Promotion: We want to promote to the wider community the values of Landcare and Bushcare.
We want to increase understanding, recognition and support of the work that volunteers, professional bush regenerators and related organisations in Greater Sydney undertake.
Information Sharing: We share news, information and resources with members and the wider community through the GSLN website and e-newsletters.
Partnerships: We aim to develop partnerships with members and other organisations so that we are able to source the funding required to undertake regionally significant environmental projects.
Assistance and Support: We support member’s Landcare and Bushcare activities and events through sponsorship and promotion of local activities.
We will receive and assist with management of project funds on behalf of member groups.
Networking: We provide networking opportunities for members through meetings, events and other activities.
This includes provide a bridge between professional and non-professional organisations working for environmental outcomes.
Who are members of the Greater Sydney Landcare Network?
Our members are groups and individuals engaged in protecting and caring for the natural environment of our region, including volunteers and professionals.

The Network has a volunteer committee and receives secretarial and administrative support from the Greater Sydney Local Land Services.
What are some of the projects that Greater Sydney Landcare is undertaking?
Source to Sea 2015: Source to Sea is a series of “celebration” events focused on the Georges, Parramatta and Hawkesbury-Nepean Rivers. Participants view, learn about, speak with and celebrate the work of Landcare and Bushcare volunteers along these waterways.
Events were held throughout the month of May 2015.
Adventure Landcare: The Greater Sydney Landcare network promotes a range of Adventure Landcare events. These activities, that have environmental aims and objectives, involve kayaking, bush walking, boating or abseiling to beautiful and often infrequently visited places.
