Nominate your Landcare Hero 2021

Nominate your Landcare Hero at the 2021 South Australian Landcare Awards Landcare South Australia is inviting nominations for the 2021 SA Landcare Awards which recognises individuals and groups in South Australia for their outstanding contributions to preserving the unique Australian landscape.

Faced with the devastation of the Black Summer bushfires, the impact of the drought and floods, and the COVID-19 pandemic, Landcarers across South Australia have rallied in the wake of unparalleled challenges. Landcarers have been locally active rebuilding communities with on-ground projects including habitat restoration for threatened species, bushland regeneration, wellbeing and mental health activities, as well as engaging volunteers who want to contribute.

The 2021 SA Landcare Awards Landcare Awards is an opportunity to celebrate and honour Landcare champions from urban and rural communities excelling in sustainable agricultural practices, environmental protection, conservation of land and waterways, coastlines and biodiversity. Sheree Bowman, Chair of Landcare South Australia says the 2021 SA Landcare Awards is a chance to celebrate the achievements of those leading the wider community to engage and participate in managing the environment and natural resources in their local area, while faced with unprecedented challenges.

"Volunteers play a vital role in restoring and maintaining our environment at a local level, and these Landcare awards are a terrific opportunity to acknowledge their efforts and celebrate their achievements.” 2019 SA Landcare Award Winner McLaren Vale Biodiversity Group said that the Landcare Award recognition has provided them with an opportunity to promote the work of her landcare group and attract funding and more volunteers. “The Landcare Award recognition has helped us engage many individuals, organisations and community led environmental groups in my community to be involved in landcare conservation projects.

It has motivated our volunteers to keep working hard to manage the environment and natural resources in our local area.” Landcare South Australia encourages nominations from groups, networks and individuals involved in protecting and improving their local environment. please find out more at:
