Joining an Existing Group

There are over 200 Landcare groups in Lake Macquarie – most are small, consisting of one or two people, while some have more than 20 volunteers in their group. The following Landcare groups are listed as they have indicated they would like more volunteers. They are broken up into Wards and sorted by suburb for ease of navigation. Please note we cannot publish a full list of contact phone numbers of the Team Leaders of each group for privacy reasons but some groups, which are listed, have indicated they do not mind making their meeting days and contact details known.
