TILBA ENVIRONMENT LANDCARERS
Tilba Environment Landcarers (TEL) is a non-profit local organisation which actively works to improve and protect the beautiful and unique natural landscape, waters and ecology of the Tilba District.
Our district ranges from Wagonga Inlet to the north, Baranguba (Montague Island) to the east, the 360 degree arc of Gulaga (Mt Dromedary) to the west and down to Kooraban National Park (Dignams Creek) to the south west and Wallaga Lake to the south east.

TEL’s objectives include:
controlling or eradicating invasive species of both fauna and flora, especially weeds;
maintaining and building healthier soils and waters;
sustaining a viable local climate-resilient ecology; and
working collaboratively with all relevant stakeholders to achieve positive long-term sustainable outcomes for, and to protect, the region’s landscape, waters and general ecology.
We do this by:
Engaging with members on relevant issues at meetings held in the Tilba Hall every two months and in email updates.
Organising a programme of education events on important landcare issues.
Organising hands-on projects in our district, such as a significant bushcare project with National Parks and Wildlife Service at Corunna Point and water quality testing of local watercourses.
Collaborating with, and representing members’ interests to, key stakeholders such as Eurobodalla Shire Council, National Parks and Wildlife Service, Local Land Services and other public bodies and relevant non-profit regional organisations.
Offering our views and expertise regarding important issues which affect us, including lodging submissions with government on a range of important issues from strategic planning through to climate change.
Maintaining communication and engagement with members and the local community regarding issues that affect the Tilba District, including leading the environmental elements of the Tilba Chamber’s Strategic Plan.
Advocating that the Tilba area becomes a UNESCO designated Biosphere Reserve so that its unique qualities are internationally recognised and protected through that listing, so that existing and future generations can live, work and play in our beautiful area.
We welcome new members who share our goals.
