Manning Coastcare’s focus is the conservation of the biodiversity of the coastal habitat and wildlife corridor on the mid-north coast of NSW in publicly owned coastal Crown Reserve Land /State Park between Crowdy Head and Hallidays Point. We are particularly concerned with protecting the littoral rainforests of the area and are a community-based, not-for-profit Incorporated Association made up of member groups and individuals. We also organize field days and workshops on a range of topics. Sometimes the restoration work we support is voluntary and sometimes we pay suitably qualified contractors. We strive to develop our skills in the control of high priority weeds such as Asparagus weed and Bitou Bush. Our funding is mostly from the State government through Landcare NSW and the Hunter Local Land Services. In 2006 Manning Coastcare was incorporated as Manning Coastcare Group Inc - a not-for-profit legal entity # 9885445 under the Associations Incorporation Act of NSW (ABN 73302754263).
