Your Local Landcarers.
Welcome to Mid Coast 2 Tops (MC2T) Landcare Connection, showcasing Landcare on the mid coast of NSW. Founded in 2019, we represent the three long-standing Landcare networks of our region, working together to preserve the natural environment of the Mid Coast region, on Biripi and Worimi lands.
Our primary role is in the facilitation of resources, advice and support to our Landcarers, both groups and individuals, to provide on-ground practical solutions to natural resource management. To achieve this, we regularly host workshops, field days and produce resources, as well as supporting projects through funding applications, media support and recognition.
As a Connection, together with our networks, we work closely with MidCoast Council, Hunter Local Land Services, Landcare NSW and Landcare Australia Limited to represent our grassroots Landcare community on a Regional, State and Federal level. We recognise and pay respects to the Traditional owners of the lands we work, the Worimi and Biripi people, and strive to engage with these communities and the generations of land management knowledge they hold.
Covering the Local Government Area of Mid Coast Council, our area encompasses the coastal area from Crowdy Bay and Johns River in the North, throughout the Myall Lakes region and as far south as Tea Gardens.
Inland, our member networks support groups and landholders throughout the highlands including Stroud, Gloucester and Barrington Tops.
Together with our fantastic volunteer committees, as part of the NSWLandcare Program, our region hosts four part-time coordinators to support our Landcare community.

MidCoast2Tops Landcare Connection incorporates three-member networks; Manning Landcare, Manning Coastcare Group and Karuah Great Lakes Landcare.
Manning Landcare is an incorporated community-based organisation that has operated in the Manning Valley for over 20 years, acting as an umbrella organisation for other member groups across the manning and Stewarts River catchments.
Since 1996, Manning Coastcare has held a strong focus on the conservation of the biodiversity and habitat value of coastal habitat on Crown Reserve Land between Crowdy Head and Hallidays Point.
Karuah & Great Lakes Landcare Inc. (KGLL), set up in 1998, is an umbrella group operating in the catchments of the Great Lakes and Karuah on the lower north coast to support community action to care for our natural resources.
