    The Northern Slopes Landcare Association (formerly Upper Gwydir Landcare Association) was formed in 1998 to bring together the numerous local Landcare Groups under an umbrella organisation that broadly covers the Bingara, Warialda, Gravesend, Rocky Creek and Upper Horton areas of the Gwydir Shire.

    The Association is managed by a committee that is made up of representatives from those areas. It employs two Local Landcare Coordinators, a Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator, and the North West Cacti Control Coordinator, who assist the Landcare groups, community groups and individuals to source information on natural resource management and to manage the day to day running of the Association.

    The NSLA works closely with the North West Local Land Services and other Government instrumentalities to co-ordinate Natural Resource Management projects within its area.

    Our goal is to provide essential ecosystem services in a changing climate to promote an environment that is healthy, better protected, well managed and resilient.

    • We provide a meeting place for community members.
    • We identify funding for landholders and community groups.
    • We conduct field days, bus trips and workshops.
    • We implement Landcare projects across the Gwydir Shire.
    • We assist Landcare groups within our region.
    • We access expert advice for landholders.
