Coffs Harbour Regional Landcare is an incorporated not for profit community organisation acting as the umbrella group for volunteers working at approximately 40 sites in the Coffs Harbour Area. Membership of CHRL is open to everyone and the organisation is managed by an elected executive committee. Volunteers work on coastal sites within the Coffs Coast Regional Park, on council reserves or other public land managed by the Office of Environment and Heritage (National Parks and Wildlife Service), by the Coffs Harbour City Council or NSW Crown Lands.
In 2015 CHRL was one of three winners of the Landcare New South Wales Coastcare Award. The Coastcare award is awarded to a community group/ network for excellence in activities that have contributed to the significant improvement of local coastal and/or marine environments including estuaries, coastal and marine wetlands and salt marsh ecosystems. This was an exciting achievement for CHRL and is a direct reflection of the wonderful work that our volunteers carry out in our local natural areas.
We work with Coffs Harbour Local Aboriginal Land Council’s Darrunda Wajaarr team on a number of projects. Here is a link to a cultural day they held recently at the fish traps at Arrawarra Headland. (click here)
