Welcome to WA Landcare Network
Landcare groups in Western Australia have formed a peak Landcare body, WA Landcare Network Inc (WALN), to directly represent and support landcare groups across the state at the national level. WALN is effectively owned by the grassroots Landcarers. The operations of WALN is focused on providing improved support, coordination and capacity building to landcare groups and increase landcare's input into NRM decision making. This is in line with WALN mission statement:
To establish an operating and useful landcare network in Western Australia that supports and strengthens the ability of member groups to undertake their work and have strong national support and involvement.
WALN believes in making a difference through strengthening the organising power and voice of community landcare groups in our State.

WALN has clear objectives in its role as the voice of landcare groups in WA:
On-ground work, planning, sharing information, facilitation, celebration and promotion of achievements of landcarers are some of the things that landcare is about.
