20th Anniversary (New England & Northwest Landcare - Landcare Adventure)
On 20th & 21st May we hosted an incredible 2 day event - the New England and Northwest Landcare, 20th Anniversary Landcare Adventure.
A massive shout out to our panel of experts and speakers; Dr Stephen Debus, Euan Belson, Rob McCormack, Dr Sarah Mika, Candice Larkin, Paul Revie, Dr John Hunter, Geoff Bassett and Leith Hawkins. Seeing the large number of landholders and land carers at each of the sessions was fantastic and hosting them at venues across all points of the compass meant this beautiful town of Tenterfield was truly on show.
Those that braved the weather and ventured out on the walk to Curry’s Gap were not only inspired and educated by our ecologist, Dr Hunter; they were fortunate to have Rob McCormack and Geoff Bassett on hand adding their insight and knowledge. A massive thank you also to Kerry who welcomed those intrepid hikers and highlighted the importance and cultural significance of the site.
To each of our venues; thank you for your professionalism, exceptional service and great food. How lucky are we to be able to showcase such a wonderful and diverse range of locations? A special thank you also to Landcare NSW’s CEO, Turlough Guerin and Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons for their contribution. Travelling up from Sydney; their presence and speeches ensured this Landcare Adventure was one that would be remembered for a long time to come.
This was a jointly funded project by the Australian and NSW Governments.
