National Landcare Network

The National Landcare Network (NLN) is the peak representative body for Landcare groups across Australia and works to provide a voice for Landcare at the national level.

The NLN membership is made up of the eight State and Territory Landcare peak bodies (including LASA), who come together to share their successes and support one another in overcoming challenges.

The NLN aims to tell a collective story that reflects the shared experiences of Landcarers across Australia, and advocate for the Landcare movement to enable it to continue its essential work building resilient and productive landscapes, and protecting our natural environment.

It is run by a Board and a Members Council, both of which are made up of volunteers from across the country. The Board is responsible for organisational governance and strategy. The Members Council, which consists of skilled and passionate Landcarers from across the country, is where NLN members debate the issues facing on-ground volunteers and determine policies and strategic projects for the organisation. The Members Council enables the NLN to be a direct conduit from grassroots Landcare to policy makers and other national stakeholders.

With all states and territories being members of the NLN, the organisation stands for approximately 160,000 Landcare volunteers from every corner of the country. LASA has been a member of the National Landcare Network since the network began.
