LBCCG is a small community group formed in 1992 that seeks to improve water quality throughout the Lake Baroon catchment by implementing on-ground works, education and awareness. The group has grown from a part time Coordinator to currently employing two full time staff, a contracted part time employee and a part time bookkeeper.

Healthy Waterways Award

Lake Baroon Catchment Care Group recently won a prestigious Healthy Waterways award – the 2015 Rural and Agriculture Award presented by Queensland Rail. LBCCG won the award for building strong relationships with local landholders and implementing over $535,000 worth of projects in the catchment. The win is a credit to the LBCCG Management Committee who are committed to the improvement of both water quality and production outcomes in the catchment .

LBCCG 2015-16 Annual Report

LBCCG grew considerably with new staff members and a significant increase in on-ground projects addressing water quality issues within the Lake Baroon catchment. Total project value totalled almost $800,000 – effectively doubling the previous year. Seqwater was once again our primary supporter with a new six year Contribution Agreement being signed, funding both LBCCG CORE projects and Strategic Catchment Improvement Programs.

Environment Levy Partnership

LBCCG’s activities align well strategically and operationally with Sunshine Coast Council’s Biodiversity & Waterways Management strategies. Consequently LBCCG was successful in receiving a three year Partnership with Council, allowing us to double our on ground projects budget by supporting resourcing needs. This project is proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Council’s grants program.
