Landcare Support

Lismore City Council

Richmond Landcare Inc is working in partnership with Lismore City Council to deliver the Urban Landcare Program.

This program provides support services to local Landcare groups within the Lismore Local Government Area and supports the delivery of the Lismore Biodiversity Management Strategy 2015-35.

Land for Wildlife

Land for Wildlife is a voluntary registration scheme that encourages landholders in the Lismore and Ballina local government areas to prioritize nature conservation on their property. Administered by Richmond Landcare, the scheme assists landholders in managing areas of wildlife habitat alongside other land management objectives.

Joining the program is free and does not change the legal status of a property. By registering, landholders demonstrate their commitment to provide and maintain at least half a hectare of their property for wildlife. The process is simple and does not involve any covenants or binding agreements.

Once an expression of interest is submitted, one of the scheme’s voluntary assessors will visit the property to progress the application to the next stage. This initial assessment is free of charge.


Richmond Landcare is also available to send a team member to community group meetings to provide further information and answer any questions about the program.
