Bob Hawke Landcare Award Nominations close this Sunday 10 July 2016
As you know the nominations for the Bob Hawke Landcare Award are open. To date we haven’t received many nominations for the Award and nominations close this Sunday.
If there are any outstanding Landcarers that you think are most deserving of the Award and associated prize, please ensure the nomination is received by this Sunday (10 July 2016).
The Award is open to an individual who has been involved in championing the Landcare ethic and inspiring others to take action on their own property or through a Landcare group. This award acknowledges an individual who has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to caring for the land; champions better practices; and gives their time to share knowledge with others so that they too can prosper.
The Bob Hawke Landcare Award recipient will be awarded with a prize package to the value of $50,000 for further development of their knowledge and skills in sustainable land management and Landcare.
To be eligible for the award, nominees must be actively involved in Landcare or sustainable agriculture and be willing to promote the Landcare ethos.
All award nominations will be assessed by an independent advisory panel, including representatives from Australian, state and territory governments, Landcare and the natural resource management community.
Nominations are now open for the 2016 Bob Hawke Landcare Award, and close on 10 July 2016.
