Individual Membership

Community Group Membership

Corporate Membership

The Group has been active since 2004 and in this short time has developed some impressive initiatives including the production and implementation of the Molonglo Catchment Strategy, culminating in the Australian Government Regional Landcare Award for the ACT in 2005. The implementation of the Strategy is underway, having provided support to landholders undertaking riparian rehabilitation works within priority sub-catchments through funding under the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program, the current projects continue in a similar vein, with incentives supported by the Australian Government's Caring for our Country initiative. The Group facilitates the Molonglo Catchment Health indicators Program (M-CHiP), a community water-quality monitoring program throughout the catchment.

What do you get for your membership?

The Group will, amongst other things:

  • Small Project Funding Support

    The Molonglo Catchment Group has used interest on grants to offer its member groups funding for on-ground projects (eg. for plants, tree-guards, herbicides or pesticides), small equipment, field days and workshops.  Because of low interest rates we are currently unable to continue to make this offer.

    In previous rounds, applications were normally be expected to be up to $600 + GST. Applications were assessed according to criteria including consistency with the Molonglo Catchment Strategy, ACT NRM Council’s Bush Capital Legacy and/or the South East Catchment Action Plan. Applications for small equipment will be assessed for the benefits to Landcare / Park Care volunteers within the region.  Preference will be given to applications that deliver direct on-ground actions for weed control, pest control, re-vegetation and fencing to protect native vegetation
