Catchment Coordinator Position


SACTCG logoThe Southern ACT Catchment Group Inc requires a Catchment Coordinator to work with volunteers, community groups, and a wide range of other stakeholder organisations to promote and implement its catchment strategy and improve the health of the SACTCG catchment.

The Southern ACT Catchment Group (SACTCG) is one of three community-based catchment group organisations in the ACT. The catchment groups act as umbrella groups for the many Landcare, Parkcare and other natural resource management (NRM) interest groups in their geographical area.

The SACTCG Catchment Group completed a ‘whole of catchment’ planning process in 2007, resulting in the development of the SACTCG Catchment Strategy, preparing the catchment community for engagement with the Australian Government’s Caring For Our Country (CFOC) and Clean Energy Futures initiatives, which require a collaborative approach to project delivery. The Strategy is currently being reviewed and updated. The key function of the catchment group is to coordinate NRM activities including weed education projects, facilitate the implementation of the SACTCG Catchment Strategy and provide strategic support to NRM groups to develop projects and receive and administer grants.
