2019 State & Territory Landcare Awards Celebrate Outstanding Landcare Champions

2019 State & Territory Landcare Awards events have been taking place across the country to celebrate the impressive achievements in the Landcare community.

Landcare has played a leading role in changing Australia’s approach to sustainable agricultural practices, environmental protection, conservation of land and waterways, coastlines, biodiversity and landscapes.

The 2019 State & Territory Landcare Awards profiles individuals and groups from urban and rural communities who are working together to care for our country.

From the coast to the country, and from cities to the outback, Landcare’s greatest asset is its people – all motivated by a shared vision to restore and protect the environment in their local community.

Landcare champions for nine national award categories have been announced in VictoriaNorthern Territory, Western AustraliaTasmania, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Australian Capital Territory
