Some of our current projects include:

  • Landcare - Our strong network of Landcare groups conduct various regular and one-off activities to protect and enhance our urban open spaces and Canberra Nature Park areas, and on private rural lands. The GCG provides financial, technical and administrative support to these groups and individual volunteers. To find out about activities in your area, have a look at the list of our member groups or some of our current Landcare projects.
  • Waterwatch - Waterwatch volunteers collect important information about water quality and catchment health in order to keep an eye on our catchment and provide insight and direction for future on-ground and other projects.
  • Frogwatch - Frogwatch volunteers collect about our local frog populations in spring every year. This information tells us where there are biodiversity ‘hot spots’ throughout the Canberra region, and provides insights that we use to protect our local frog populations. Frogwatch also runs a range of exciting education programs relating to the wonderful world of frogs
  • Protecting Our Bush on the Boundary - Find out about a variety of initiatives focused on protecting significant nature reserves in Gungahlin.
  • Restoring Native Grasslands - The Ginninderra Catchment Group and the North Belconnen Landcare Group are investigating management techniques to turn weed-filled grasslands into the healthy, diverse native grasslands that formerly dominated the Ginninderra Creek corridor.
  • Serrated Tussock Control - A project with local landholders to control serrated tussock using innovative management techniques.
  • Schools Education Program - We conduct fun, engaging and educational activities for schools, scouts and other community groups - for free!
