Landcare Award Nominations Open

15-May-2017

North-West Tasmanians are being urged to recognise those who are working to protect the environment and deliver more sustainable agriculture.
 
Liberal Senator for Tasmania Stephen Parry said the Landcare Awards are designed to recognise local groups and volunteers for their dedication commitment.
 
“Here in Tasmania, Landcare is supported by more than 150 groups and their passionate volunteers,” Senator Parry said.
 
“It’s important we acknowledge the individuals, partnerships and organisations that are carrying out this essential work.
 
“Landcare is a major part of the Commonwealth Government’s billion dollar investment in improving the condition of our natural resources including soil health.”
 
The Australian Government understands that we can’t have a sustainable agricultural industry without looking after its productive base - soil management, weed, pest and disease management, water management and biodiversity. 
 
Agriculture relies heavily on the health of the natural environment and the Australian Government is proud to acknowledge those dedicated to protecting it for future generations.
 
This year there are nine national categories including sustainable farming, indigenous land management, young land carers and coast care.
 

Nominations for the Tasmanian awards close 15 September, with the award ceremony to be held in November.
