    Southern New England Landcare’s Executive Officer, Mrs Karen Zirkler, said, “The breadth and depth of Charlie’s professional experience will enable him to successfully undertake the position of Landcare Coordinator very competently, and we are all looking forward to having him on board.”

    “Mr Carruthers has worked for both State Government departments on large scale projects, and as an independent consultant,” she said.

    “I have delivered several aquatic habitat planning and rehabilitation projects, a highlight of which were two years as the Native Fish Strategy Coordinator for southern NSW and the ACT,” said Mr Carruthers.

    Landcare NSW is proud to announce that Executive Member and Secretary, Steph Cameron, has been awarded Local Woman of the Year by Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson.

    Congrats Steph! It’s great to see your contribution recognised.

    Southern New England Landcare is excited to launch it's brand new website on 1st April 2016.

    After the board gave their approval to overhaul the dated site in February, the team have been working with Web Design Domain to provide a fresh new look, and a stack of new features to the site.

    "Regular users will notice a number of new features, including fast access to details about up-coming events, as well as the ability to update and renew their membership online," said Southern New England Landcare's Executive Officer Mrs Karen Zirkler.

    "Users will find fantastic information about the valuable work of the Landcare volunteers in our region, with details about major projects past and present, the activities of our local groups, and useful resources and links to helpful sites," she said.

    "For our local farmers, there is also a quick link to 3-day weather forecasts," she said.

    If you need help navigating your way around the new site, or if you notice a 'glitch' that needs tweeking, please contact us so we can make your experience at our site even better!

    Diamond FiretailOur amazing native wildlife has needs that are not very different from our own, after all we’re animals too, something we often forget!  Just like us our native wildlife also require a house to live in. But just having shelter is not enough, a point made by Darryl Kerrigan in the iconic Australian comedy The Castle when he exclaimed 'It's not a house, it's a home'.  But what makes a house a home?  It’s not enough to have four walls and a roof, we also need furniture, heating and of course food.
