Key areas activity:

Tylden landcare group has had a focus on Gorse control and revegetation along Premier Mine Road, working with multiple partners, landowners and the wider community. District Gorse control is to be a priority for the landcare group in coming years; particularly mapping. The group has provided trees to members and has run a series of guest speakers to meetings. During more recent times Tylden Landcare group has prioritised the rehabilitation of the Little Coliban River.

An ongoing partnership has been established between landcare and the Tylden school where students have grown indigenous seedlings for the river rehabilitation project. A project within the river rehabilitation program is the reintroduction of a locally endangered species – the Hairy Anchor Plant (Discaria pubescens).
