Landscape Groups

District-based Landscape Groups provide an important link between local communities and the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board . Group members are local people who ensure that there is community input into the development and delivery of the Plan for the region. Groups also help people in the community to care for the environment and use natural resources sustainably by building awareness, skills and networks.

There are seven Landscape Groups in the SA Arid lands region:

A map of all districts is available here



Group meetings are held at regular intervals across the region. If you have any queries about the groups, please contact the relevant Community Landscape Officer.

If you would like to know more about our District Groups and becoming a member read our fact sheet, or contact our office on 8648 5307.

Soil Board plans

Prior to the community-based Landscape Board, and the former SA Arid Lands NRM Board, each of the districts in the SA Arid Lands region had a community-based Soil Conservation Board. The SAAL Landscape Board recognises that many in the region still utilise the information in the Soil Board Plans and the information continues to inform planning processes around the SA Arid Lands Regional Plan.
