“Informing, educating and inspiring our local community on environmental, conservation, heritage, cultural, indigenous and best practice sustainable land management issues.”

Southwest Mornington Peninsula Landcare Group (SWaMP Landcare) covers the southern peninsula from McCrae across to Cape Schanck and down to Point Nepean. The group has delivered a host of successful projects in recent years, including ‘Protect & Connect’ Stages 1 – 3 in the Peninsula Gardens region of Rosebud,  ‘Moonah Woodland Restoration’ in Fingal and Grassy Bowl Restoration works at London Bridge/Pt. Nepean.
