About Wooragee Landcare Group Inc.

Meet some of our members

Terry ("Bushy", in the hat) is a long term member who throws himself into working bees and runs great orchid walks each year. 

Chris has leapt  into Wooragee landcare since she retired a few years ago. And aren't we glad she has retired! Among many other things, she leads the Warden Lane Reserve revegetation project.

Dirk was a long serving treasurer, and is involved in most activities we have, especially leading the annual plant give-away.  This is him at our Wooragee Produce market manning the Landcare stall which he did weekly, and trying out the ice-cream.

Graeme helped to establish WLC from its earliest days. He is a believer in sustainable living and caring for the land. He believes one should be responsible for any land you own and leave it in a better condition than when you purchased or inherited it. 

Karen (right) is secretary of the decade - and in fact its heading towards a decade that she has been secretary extraordinaire.   She keeps our Facebook very active and also involved with any working bees.

Lisa (left) is a cheery (always great to have) working bee helper and is improving habitat on her property.

Fleur is sometimes our overseas correspondent. Stories about nature in Fiji have been very interesting. 

Anne has taken over much of the treasurer role (hero already!) and is very interested in cultural burning and sustainable farming 

Del has taken over some of the treasurer role especially membership . As a relatively new committee member she has taken to landcare like a frog to water -she has fallen in love with frogs and nature journaling - and is a great "worker bee" (comes to working bees)

Karen is a member of Wooragee Landcare and  lives in Albury. She does workshops for us as well as much behind the scenes, especially as our IT guru, and we don't use that word lightly. She has been leading our nature journaling adventures and works at the school doing nature based learning.

Alicia was the dynamo principal of the Wooragee primary School and member of the Wooragee community until recently. She encouraged a close relationship with senior and junior Landcare and lead the way with organising nature activities for the kids on a regular basis - see left. We will post when there is a new principal.

Pieter is always ready to come and help at working bees and has introduced us to the mighty auger attached to the battery drill - makes planting a breeze especially grasses.

Sue is the newsletter editor and president, and is interested in anything in nature. Being involved in education most of her life she can't seem to help herself, so  helps organize workshops and other events.

Jerry (left) runs a mean committee meeting (the army would be envious)  as well as providing  animal information and coming to working  bees.

Owen and Eric are our wonderful Wooragee Primary School gardeners weekly inspiring and educating the junior landcarers. They were stars in the Gardening Australia 30th year celebrations program. Wooragee Landcare and Gardening Australia started the same year.
