Landcare and community groups involved with natural resource management are encouraged to complete the Australian Government’s National Landcare Survey.
Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) Regional Landcare Facilitator Charlie Sexton said the survey, which is being provided in each region by the Regional Landcare Facilitator Program, is designed to collect information from natural resource management regions across Australia to help the Australian Government develop a ‘snapshot’ of the current state of the Landcare movement.
“Any community group that associates with undertaking natural resource management activities or projects is encouraged to undertake the survey”. Mr Sexton said. “If a community group isn’t sure if they should complete the survey, they are encouraged to get in touch with the Regional Landcare Facilitator for their area to find out."
“One of the aims of the survey is to find out how best to engage the Landcare community in the National Landcare Programme, so it is very important that Landcare and community groups involved in natural resource management participate.”
Mr Sexton said information collected from the survey would be used to identify emerging issues relevant to sustainable agriculture and the environment, as well as Landcare community needs as a whole, and will ultimately help to inform the continuing design of the National Landcare Programme.
Community groups that complete the survey have a chance to win $1,000 to undertake activities in their community.
For further information or to obtain a hard copy of the survey, please contact Charlie Sexton, Regional Landcare Facilitator, Goulburn Broken CMA on firstname.lastname@example.org or 5764 7507.
Charlie is also available to assist groups to complete the survey if required.
