Located in the Mt Lofty Ranges in South Australia, the Mt Pleasant Natural Resource Centre Inc. (MPNRC) is a non-profit volunteer based centre.  The Centre opened in 2000 with the vision of local community members who wanted a resource in the region to access information on natural resource issues.

The MPNRC services a diverse region, including the North and South Para Catchments, Upper River Torrens Catchment, Marne, Saunders and Reedy Creek Catchments.

How does it all work?
A committee comprising of volunteers elected from the local community and the Centre Coordinator manage the MPNRC.


The natural resource centre coordinator, under the management of the committee:
provides training and supervision for volunteers, organises forums and workshops on matters of interest to the local community, works with voluntary staff to carry out environmental monitoring, schools education programs and special projects, networks with other natural resource centres and advisors in the provision of referral services.


The MPNRC provides a focal point for spreading new and useful information for living within our natural environment and the creation of partnerships in land and environmental management. The MPNRC provides community access to equipment information and advice on a broad range of natural resource management issues as well as an accessible meeting venue and work space for community groups involved in natural resource management.


How are we funded?
The MPNRC receives funding and in-kind contributions from The Government of South Australia Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board, the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board, and The Barossa Council.  And, most importantly, by the input of huge numbers of hours from dedicated volunteers.


Natural Resource Centres in the Mt Lofty Ranges
The Mt Pleasant Natural Resource Centre is one of 6 Natural Resource Centres across the Mt Lofty Ranges.


In 2003 the Centres formed a Natural Resource Centre Alliance - a working agreement between the Centres promoting shared resources, ideas and expertise to more comprehensively meet the community needs of the greater region.
