Barkly Landcare and Conservation Association was formed in 1995 and is a community of pastoralists who are dedicated to improving land and environmental management practices on the Barkly Tableland region of the Northern Territory.  The Barkly Tableland Landcare region spans an area of 200,000km across 37 pastoral leases in the Northern Territory.  The region hosts the productive Mitchell Grass downs, a  type of resilient native perennial grassland. 

Since it was established Barkly Landcare has undertaken riparian restoration projects, supported Parkinsonia aculeata dieback research, delivered best management practices in erosion control and distributed findings on the collaborative integration of biodiversity and fire management in the Barkly Rangelands.  Barkly Landcare has been recognised within the Northern Territory Landcare community numerous times for its comprehensive approach to natural resource management.
