Currently we have 30 family memberships who are supporting us. We would love to see a few more of these members become more ‘hands on’ and learn more about and share our Landcare work and carry it on to the next generation.

In the future we need to continue to advocate for and support the preservation of our ecosystem, the biodiversity it supports and our ‘sense of place’ which makes Batesford and the Moorabool River so special.
