Thank you to all those who responded to the survey. As a result, I will be bringing you news and events fortnightly and will be incorporating more links for case studies, bringing you news of landcare within the region as well as showcasing projects, events and news as you are used to.
August 1-7 is Landcare Week - a celebration acknowledging all Australians who are actively restoring, enhancing and protecting the natural environment in their community. The first true landcarers are the First Nations people who managed and worked this land for thousands of years.
Landcare is unique; it has a large number of active groups, partnerships between business, researchers, natural resource management agencies, government and community. They focus on local community issues with the support of local people who all work together to protect the environment and enhance it.
Within the Goulburn Broken region, Landcare has been operating for about 30 years in a more coordinated approach to supporting Landcare works and activities. There are nine established community led natural resource management networks supporting approximately 96 active community natural resource management groups, comprising of 3,207 members plus 3,238 volunteers (2020-21 Landcare survey). If you would like to join a group or get involved in Landcare, please contact me on 0438 310 840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
