Our Community Charter and Operating Model
Parklands Albury Wodonga (Parklands) is focused on providing opportunities for people to access and experience the extraordinary range of bush parks in and around Albury-Wodonga. We undertake the conservation of these areas from an ecological perspective, while allowing sympathetic recreational access.
Our regional parklands embrace in excess of 3000 hectares of land along the riverine environment of the Murray and Kiewa Rivers; tributary creek valleys; sections of the Lake Hume foreshore; the High Country Rail Trail and hills and ranges in and around Albury-Wodonga.
We are a cross-border, community-based, not for profit organisation, undertaking conservation, recreation and cultural heritage projects for the benefit of our regional community and visitors.
The primary focus of Parklands is to facilitate the involvement of local community in each project. By so doing, we aim to ensure that the community takes ownership and responsibility for the long-term viability and enhancement of all its regional parklands.
Our Mission: RESTORE – IMPROVE – MAINTAIN – EDUCATE
Our mission is to restore, improve and maintain the network of bush parks connecting urban and rural communities. We encourage community learning and engagement with the local natural environment.
Our bush reserves and trails will have a high standard of biodiversity and natural values, achieved by empowering community participation and partnerships.
Parklands Albury Wodonga has developed a bush parks management framework based on the protection of nature and restoration of degraded public lands in the Albury Wodonga region, for conservation, recreation and heritage outcomes and the benefit of our community.
