Wangaratta Urban Landcare Group
The Wangaratta Urban Landcare Group is one of the few urban Landcare groups in the North East. The group has
been working on a number of public reserves within Wangaratta, particularly Kaluna Park.
The group is committed to improving the natural vegetation, waterways and urban environment of Wangaratta through community participation and co-operation. The group has been working hard to ensure that Kaluna Park can be enjoyed by all for generations to come.
Members have been gradually restoring the remnant Red Gum woodland vegetation in Kaluna Park, through weed control and removal, and planting of understorey and wetland species.
The work of the Wangaratta Urban Landcare Group was recognised through their inclusion on the cover of the 2002 White Pages for the Alexandra, Benalla and Wangaratta area. The photo below is the actual photo from the cover,

The group is always open to new members with on interest in Natural Resource Management and Sustainability issues.
