The Hunter Region Landcare Network (HRLN) was formed in 1998 as a voluntary association of Landcare groups in the Upper and Lower Hunter, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens regions.
HRLN is a leading partner with business in increasing the region’s environmental, economic and social sustainability though the strength of its profile, community network and alliances.
Increase the sustainability and relevance of the HRLN in meeting mainstream regional natural resource management (NRM) challenges individually and in partnership with the private sector and other key players including the Hunter Central Rivers CMA (HCRCMA) and Commonwealth, State and Local Government.
Through increased profile, independence and funding diversification more people and organisations are attracted to undertake action to increase local and regional sustainability through joining or partnering with HRLN.
HRLN is building on locally-focused actions often linked to the region’s Catchment Action Plan (CAP) as outlined by the Hunter-Central Rivers CMA. It will increasingly focus on larger more integrated projects with its network. This will be in partnership with the private sector and other players interested in mainstream challenges including water and climate change.
