ONE of the region’s oldest and largest Landcare groups is celebrating its 25th anniversary this weekend.
Lexton Landcare began in April 1988 to combat soil erosion, problems with rabbits, weeds and other issues in the area.
Project manager David Clark said it was intended to be a 30-year project, but now, five years from that milestone, he saw their work going beyond that.
With about 100 members and 150 people on its mailing list, the group has planted half a million trees, completed more than 500 projects and repaired, protected and revegetated three quarters of the 150 kilometres of streams in its area.
Tomorrow, the group will celebrate its achievements with a project bus tour, native bird walk and celebratory dinner.
