Vols x 4 18 4 21In a first for MCMC and for the Upper Merri, we will be employing a Landcare Facilitator to fill a Landcare ‘gap’ in the upper Merri and upper Plenty catchments in the Shire of Mitchell and the City of Hume.

The Upper Merri Landcare Facilitator will work with MCMC, Friends of Merri Creek and the Wallan Environment Group on project funding, organising events, engaging the community and trying to create or resuscitate other Landcare-oriented groups in the upper catchment.

We are very grateful for $74,334 in funding over three years from the Victorian Government’s 2021-24 Victorian Landcare Facilitator Program, which has provided funding to Landcare groups and networks to employ or engage 80 Landcare facilitators to support Landcare and environmental volunteer groups to undertake works for the protection, enhancement and restoration of our land and natural environment.

Applications for the Landcare Facilitator position closed at 9am on Monday 2 August. For enquiries, contact MCMC’s Strategic Projects Manager, Tony Faithfull, who will be supervising the position: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
