About Us

The CVCIA was founded in November 2008 by Sharon Lehman as a way to network people wanting to actually help out and be involved in local conservation projects.

In 2009, the CIA became a Landcare group with the assistance of the wonderful people at Clarence Landcare. This has enabled the CVCIA to evolve into the active and exciting organisation it is now.

CVCIA Landcare has evolved to be chiefly involved in Cane Toad control and running the Indian Myna control program in the Clarence Valley. The emphasis is on actually doing something and involving the whole family.

We are non-political with a focus to on-ground actions. Check out our Facebook to see some great photos and stories of our cane toad hunting and myna trapping adventures. We have a great deal of fun and exercise, all while helping out the environment – what could be better?

So join up, come along, or just follow us to see what the CIA is up to next.

Cheers, Sharon Lehman
CVCIA Founder
