Central West Lachlan Landcare Inc provide support to communities in the Parkes and Forbes Shires. The activities of Landcare are the result of volunteers that have a desire to maintain and improve their environment-promoting natural resource management and sustainable farming practices. This is achieved through on-ground works, coordinating and implementing field days and workshops, and working in with schools and like minded organisations.
We pursue funding and other opportunities, with the intention of increasing biodiversity and productivity, whilst expanding education on NRM issues. We promote a collaborative approach with local groups, to make the CWLL area vibrant and sustainable.
After the success of the inaugural Homegrown Parkes event on Saturday, 25 March 2023, the Homegrown Committee have decided to proceed with panning for another event on Saturday, 21 October 2023. Updates will be shared via the Homegrown Parkes page on our website.
Year 5 State of the Environment Report
At the 2022 Schools Eco Day in August, we asked our students to contribute to a State of the Environment Report.
Students from Parkes Shire, Forbes Shire and Eugowra responded to ten questions about our environment to provide insight into their knowledge about environmental issues in our local area. Find out more by clicking the cover below.
