In 1995 local Glenlyon residents established the Victorian Farm & Tree Landcare Group to combat the expansion of gorse and blackberry on farming property. On the establishment of Landcare Victoria, VF&T Landcare Group transitioned to the Glenlyon Upper Loddon Landcare Group (GULLG). In 2018 GUULG was incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act as a not-for-profit organisation.
Our purpose is to run a range of activities that have a community capacity-building and environmental focus, and to maintain, protect and enhance the natural assets in our region.
