Landcare calls for volunteer recognition

Now is the time to nominate the achievements of volunteers around the state who dedicate their time and energy into caring for the land and water.

The 2017 Landcare Awards encompass a number of categories including sustainable farming, Indigenous land management, young Landcare leaders, Coastcare and innovation.

All winners at the state and territory level will go on to be finalists at the 2018 National Landcare Awards. 

Landcare Australia chief executive Tessa Jakszewicz encouraged people to nominate deserving volunteers.

“Recognising our Landcare champions is vital for sustaining Landcare and its future,” she said. 

“The opportunity to showcase the accomplishments of individuals and groups enables us to share knowledge, and serves as inspiration for the next generation of Landcarers.”
