Landcare awards now open
STATE and territory Landcare awards are just around the corner, so now is the time for the Landcare community to submit nominations in the nine different categories.
The Landcare awards celebrate the achievements of the core volunteers around the country who dedicate their valuable time and energy into caring for the land and water that sustain us.
The categories encompass a number of areas, including sustainable farming, Indigenous land management, young Landcare leaders, Coastcare, innovation, and more.
All winners at the state and territory level will go on to be finalists at the 2018 National Landcare Awards.
Tessa Jakszewicz, chief executive officer of Landcare Australia, encourages everyone to get involved and nominate deserving Landcarers they know for an award.
“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.”

The Victorian Landcare award entries close on Friday, June 23.
