Who we are and what we do
Yes! We've changed our name!
Previously Illawarra Youth Landcare, Illawarra Intrepid Landcare is a team of young adventurous volunteers (late teens to 30's) which meets once a month and travels around assisting a different Landcare / Bushcare groups in the Illawarra and across NSW.
We are all about exploring this great country we live in, and every project we do we try to mix it up with some conservation work and an outdoor adventure activity!
Our projects are a mix of one day local projects and weekend adventures which involve some degree of travel out of the area. We always explore what each region has to offer, do something fun like kayaking, swimming, surfing or bushwalking, and help other environmental groups such as NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, private landholders, farmers and other adventure conservation groups such as Willow Warriors to carry out environmental projects. Check out our gallery to see what we've been up to over the years.
Or check out this documentary and hear from the Illawarra Youth Landcare volunteers themselves!
New members are ALWAYS welcome, and these are some of the things you will get out of joining our projects...
- Help the environment
- Great networking opportunities
- Learn about environmental management issues
- Learn practical conservation skills
- Meet new people
- Visit some pretty amazing places
There are some incredible sites out there that need our help and activities include creek restoration, bushland regeneration, and open space revegetation. And because of the partnerships we have with people and organisations, we often venture into areas the general public don't get access to, or generally don't know about.
Each Landcare project is topped off with a social activity whether it be a game of beach cricket and a swim in warmer months, a BBQ, or a meal and a game of pool at the local. Our overnight projects often involve camping along the banks of a river, visits to swimming holes, cave tours, bushwalks and more!
