About Sutherland Shire Environment Centre

We are an independent, not-for-profit, community organisation actively involved in a wide range of projects aimed at maintaining the natural beauty and character of our Shire, and surrounding waterways and parks.  We promote sustainability, support environmental education, and welcome community involvement to help us address environmental issues that affect the Shire and its bioregions.

A current focus is to protect our water supply at Woronora – including our recent petition calling for the mining underneath our reservoir to be stopped.  Sutherland Shire Environment Centre supports a number of other fantastic environmental initiatives, in addition to this campaign.  If you are interested in living more sustainably at home, or at work, we may be able to help.  Our Sunny ShireSO Shire, and Plastic Free Sutherland Shire groups liaise with a number of local organisations, schools and businesses, and can offer advice about solar energy, batteries, and sustainable practices.
