Local land managers hold the keys to unlock landscape potential

Do you own or manage a piece of land?

As stewards of our unique landscapes, private landholders and land managers play a crucial role in the sustainability of the land, waters and natural assets across the Hills and Fleurieu.

The region’s passionate and committed land managers possess knowledge and experience that can help shape support and services offered by Landscapes Hills and Fleurieu in the coming years.

Landscapes Hills and Fleurieu is one of nine regional landscape boards in SA, and works together with land managers, First Nations, community groups and other organisations to sustainably manage the region’s beautiful, biodiverse and productive landscapes.

“To ensure a comprehensive understanding of land management challenges, restoration opportunities and people’s capacity, we’re calling on help from our local land managers. By sharing your knowledge and experiences, you can shape our future initiatives and services offered,” said Alison Skinner, Landscapes Hills and Fleurieu’s Team Leader Planning and MERI.

“At this stage, we are asking those who own or manage parcels of land in the region that is greater than one hectare in area, to complete a short survey – the feedback will help us offer the right support in the right places. We need as many land managers to participate in the survey as possible, whether you already use our services or not. This is about identifying gaps and landholder needs, and connecting them to the right knowledge, services and funding opportunities.”

“We live in such a special region with some of the most biodiverse and productive landscapes in the country. Most of this land is owned privately, so we have a real opportunity to work together and create landscape-scale change and sustainability.”

All survey participants will go in the draw to win one of five $100 gift vouchers.

The survey is open until 6 August 2023 – complete it here.
