To promote and implement Land for Wildlife in the SW Slopes region has led to the creation of the South West Slopes Partnership.sws_parrot.jpg Partners provide information or support locally on the LFW Program.

Land for Wildlife is a voluntary program for rural landowners who wish to provide some habitat for wildlife regardless of whether the property is used for agriculture, commercial or lifestyle purposes. It is confidential and free to join.

The South West Slopes region covers the area from Dubbo in the north to Albury in the south, Griffith and Condobolin to the west and Tumut and Molong in the east. It includes the towns of Cowra, Forbes, Mudgee, Parkes, Wellington, West Wyalong and Young.
