Land for Wildlife
The Land for Wildlife (LfW) program was initiated in Victoria in 1981 and has expanded across Australia, coming to Queensland in 2000. There are over 200 members, and over 15,000ha in the program.
The Lockyer Valley Regional Council supports the LfW program in the Lockyer Valley. The LfW program aims to supports landholders with managing their properties for multiple benefits, local flora and fauna and their conservation, regional ecosystems, including advice on erosion, pests, and weeds.
The Lockyer Valley Regional Council supports the LfW program through employing a Land for Wildlife Officer. This LfW Officer supports LfW landholders and facilitates the extension of additional council LfW support programs such as the LfW Free Native Plant Program, field days and workshops.
