LFW encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation along with other land management objectives. 

The program is free for landholders to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.
The program offers:
  • Site assessments
  • Advice on suggested management strategies and actions for the property
  • Support and encouragement for landholders to carry out nature conservation on their land.
