LR was engaged by the Yeoval UPA Aged Care Services in October 2020, to support their efforts in natural resource management within the centre. The centre managed waste reduction through the Council owned co-mingled recycling service and wished to incorporate organics recycling into daily waste minimisation practices.

The Goobang Cluster project successfully removed pest animal access to 4545 ha through exclusion fencing and a buffering zone of a further 3970 ha. By collaborating across the Goobang cluster boundary, landholders reduced the recovery periods associated with excessive pest animal grazing during drought, effectively enabling the cluster to match their stocking rates with their carrying capacity.

A $100,000 project that aimed to protect and enhance the waterway habitat of the endangered Purple Spotted Gudgeon. Evidence of the fish population was first noted in 2013 in a secondary tributary off the Little River. On ground restoration and rehabilitation works was funded through two grants from the NSW Environmental Trust and Landcare Australia.

Funded through the Dept. of justice this project aimed to build resilience capacity in regional communities pre and post disaster. Topics ranged from flood, fire & drought through to a social tragedy. The like-minded group formed and spent several days together work shopping and networking with Paul Ryan a leader in Resilience training over a period of 3 months.
