Brisbane Valley – Kilcoy Landcare acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Country on which we meet and work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare (BVKL) is a volunteer-run organisation that promotes biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, sustainable land use, and healthy waterways in the greater Somerset region, including Esk, Toogoolawah, Kilcoy, Crossdale, Royston, Sandy Creek, and Neurum
Since establishment in 1989, we have been supporting landholders and community members to adopt sustainable land-use and land management practices that restore, protect, and enhance natural resources, land, waterways, and biodiversity..
We provide opportunities for people to learn about the environment and get involved with local restoration projects and events. We provide workshops, guest speakers, community grants and visits to properties undergoing restoration. BVKL collaborates with other community groups and local government.
Our purpose: To inspire, connect, educate and support people to restore, protect and regenerate the natural environment.
We achieve this by:
- conducting information sessions, activities and workshops about the environment and sustainability
- visiting properties to develop awareness, exchange ideas and deepen understanding of conservation and regeneration
- providing resources (e.g. small grants, volunteers, literature, contacts) to assist people to implement land care projects
- fostering cooperation between land users, governments and non-government organisations, and
- working on practical conservation and regeneration projects, including on members’ land.
