Are you passionate about the natural resources that support the sustainable growth of your industry and community?

Landscape boards need strategic thinkers ready to empower our communities to sustainably manage our state’s landscapes – our land, water, pest plants and animals, and biodiversity.

Now is the time to register your interest in being appointed as a landscape board member of the following boards:

  • Alinytjara Wiluṟara
  • Eyre Peninsula
  • Hills and Fleurieu
  • Kangaroo Island
  • Limestone Coast
  • Murraylands and Riverland
  • Northern and Yorke
  • South Australia Arid Lands

Who should apply?

Landscape board members are experienced and respected community leaders, often with established networks with relevant stakeholders and partners.

Collectively, an effective board needs a broad range of skills, experience and knowledge in areas relating to the effective operation of organisations, and the practical issues of community-based landscape management.

Board members are appointed for their skills, knowledge and experience, as opposed to organisations or communities that they may otherwise represent.

Candidates ideally live locally in the region, however candidates who live elsewhere with a deep understanding of the region’s landscape management may also be considered.

Membership on the board aims to reflect the region’s diversity in culture, gender, experience, skills and age.

How to apply

Detailed information, including an application form, is available on the landscape board nominations page of this website.

If you need a print copy of either the membership information pack or applications forms, or if you have questions about the application process, contact your local landscape board, or DEW Landscape Services phone 8463 6074 or email
