The Upper Murrumbidgee Landcare Committee works in partnership and collaboration, to lead and encourage strategies to improve land and the overall environment in the Upper Murrumbidgee by sharing information, skills, experience and support amongst regional landcare groups and affiliated associations.
The Committee comprises representatives from many of the Landcare Groups in the upper catchment, and works with Landcare members and the community to improve education about sustainable land and water management and with regional Landcare groups and the community to develop on-ground projects.
The UMLC was formed in 1995 as an umbrella group for the Landcare groups in the upper part of the catchment. The UMLC covers an area of 6,500 square kilometres, from Nimmitabel in the south to Queanbeyan in the north and Adaminaby in the west to Numeralla in the east.
There are eighteen Landcare groups in the network and the main natural resource issues that they focus on in this area are:
- weed invasion
- stream bank and gully erosion
- declining remnant vegetation.
