Apollo Bay Landcare Group

The Apollo Bay Landcare Group includes the township of Apollo Bay and the valleys of Skenes Creek and Wild Dog Creek. Landcare in the Southern Otways was born in this area, primarily out of a concern to control Ragwort and fight logging of old growth forests.

The Apollo Bay Landcare Group remains a key force in local Landcare with many members having made significant contributions to environmental rehabilitation on their properties. Whilst continuing concern for weed and pest management, the group also has a strong focus on local environmental issues such as monitoring the nests of the endangered Hooded Plover.
