History


The inaugural meeting of Wooragee Landcare Group was held at the Wooragee Hall on November 2nd 1988 with Graeme Missen as Chairman for the evening.
An enthusiastic and very active committee was elected at that meeting and the group has moved from strength to strength from that time.

Junior Landcare was launched at Wooragee Primary School on March 15th 1989.


Wooragee Landcare has been involved in many activities aimed at fulfilling its mission statement. Consultation and liaison between landholders and government and council agencies has been an essential part of the group’s work to maintain constant vigilance in the eradication of pest plants and animals from our land, and in the promotion of revegetation projects and the protection of remaining remnants of natural vegetation.


The establishment of a display garden of indigenous plants and the erection of the barbeque facility and public noticeboard have been past projects.
