The Nerrena/Tarwin Valley Landcare group

The Nerrena Landcare Group was formed in 1995 and aimed to protect and enhance the natural assets of the area, through action, community participation, education and awareness.

The Tarwin Valley Landcare Group was formed in 2011 and was located in the previous areas of the Jindinook and Stony Creek Landcare groups. The driving force of Landcare in the area has always been the continual development of links along the east branch of the Tarwin River and its tributaries. The group covers 24,524 ha and is characterised by agricultural land with a few fragmented remnants.

In 2017 the Nerrena and Tarwin Valley Landcare groups amalgamated, forming the Nerrena/Tarwin Valley Landcare group or NTVLG.
