The Moore Catchment Council is a not-for-profit community body with the aim to maintain and improve the health of the Moore River environment by communicating natural resource management and encouraging maximum sustainable use of resources.
The vision of the Moore Catchment Council is that there will be a stronger link between people, the economy and the environment. The Moore River drainage system covers an extensive area of land, linking the Shires of Gingin, Dandaragan, Victoria Plains, Moora, Coorow, Dalwallinu, Carnamah and Perenjori.
The philosophy of the Moore Catchment Council is to protect and continue to enhance our natural resources so we have something of value to pass on to our children.
The role of the Moore Catchment Council is to promote integrated catchment management and to co-ordinate efforts in the river catchment to get the most effective action on the ground.
The Moore Catchment Council has consulted widely with the community and is sourcing funds to implement these strategies, leading to effective on-ground actions
