Landcare Week is an annual celebration of landcare held during the first week of August to acknowledge Australians who are actively restoring, enhancing and protecting the natural environment in their community.

Landcare volunteers and groups work all year to care for the environment in their community, and 2024 Landcare Week is an opportunity for groups to promote their projects and thank their volunteers. 2024 Landcare Week is also an opportunity to create awareness of landcare and to inspire people to get involved and volunteer, or for community organisations to offer financial or in-kind support to local groups.

Don’t have the word ’landcare’ in your group name? No problem! Landcare is for everyone. You could be a tree care, Coastcare, bush care, dune care, river care, ‘Friends of’ or Junior Landcare group. Any community-led group working on environmental projects is part of landcare and can get involved in 2024 Landcare Week to promote their great work.

With more than 6,000 groups and over 140,000 volunteers, landcare encompasses not only landcare and other community groups, also forestry and arbor workers, farmers, landholders, traditional owners and First Nations organisations, landcare facilitators and coordinators, youth groups, researchers, academics, and government agencies.

During 2024 Landcare Week, Landcare Australia is showcasing how ‘Landcare is for Everyone’, and celebrating the achievements of all, from farmers planting wildlife corridors on their properties, students learning about biodiversity and where their food comes from, to community groups creating native seedbanks to businesses encouraging their staff to volunteer with landcare groups.

There are opportunities for everyone to take action with landcare. Landcare brings everyone together to actively be involved in sustainable land management and conservation activities.
