National Volunteer Week kicks off today (Monday), and Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board chair Dianne Davidson said volunteers were vital in looking after the region's stunning landscapes.
Ms Davidson said local volunteers were involved in many activities including planting native vegetation, controlling weeds or feral animals, managing wetlands, protecting threatened species, supporting sustainable production and getting involved in citizen science.
"Our region would not be the amazing place it is without these dedicated, hardworking and generous people," she said.

The landscape board is hosting celebrations at Overland Corner and Murray Bridge to show appreciation for volunteers.
'We're looking forward to bringing local volunteers together to celebrate all the work they do, network with each other, and meet members of the landscape board," Ms Davidson said.
