The Home Creek - Spring Creek Landcare group was established in the late 1980s.
Members are local landholders, mostly engaged in cattle and sheep production. The history of the group involves assistance to its members in dealing with erosion issues and tree planting on various private and public properties in the district. Strong relationships exist between the local council, DSE, Trust for Nature and Tree Project Victoria in caring for the land within the catchment.
More recently the group has had significant involvement in the restoration of the Cathkin Rail Reserve, an important asset to the Great Victorian Rail Trail. The group aims to develop strong social support within the area, with all its projects, including weed control, tree planting for habitat and land health, and other Landcare activities, being undertaken to benefit the environment and local landholders.
