Walking together to manage our region’s landscapes
23 February 2022
Strengthening partnerships with First Nations people to manage, restore and protect Country is an aspiration gaining momentum across South Australia.
Nine landscape boards have made a strong commitment to reconciliation and to strengthening partnerships with First Nations across the state by signing Landscape SA’s historic “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Statement of Commitment”.
Chair of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board Penny Schulz was delighted to endorse a state-wide Statement of Commitment.
“In our own Limestone Coast Regional Landscape Plan and Annual Business Plan we declared our intent to continue to walk with First Nations in the sustainable management of our landscape and grow these relationships through new opportunities. First Nations people are benefitting from these partnerships by gaining employment to undertake weed control services, for example, and bringing cultural knowledge to burning activities in our region.”
“By having conversations and working together, our landscapes benefit.” she said.
“We are excited about growing our land management knowledge and practices together.”
