In the first week of September every year, thousands of Landcarers from all walks of life get together to recognise and celebrate the tireless efforts and commitment of volunteers who help protect and restore our natural environment.
It is also an opportunity to invite others to learn more about Landcare and get involved with a local Landcare group.
This year Landcare is celebrating its 30-year anniversary – a great reason to celebrate.
If your Landcare group is running an event during Landcare Week 2019, 2-8 September, please help us create awareness of the invaluable work being carried out across the state.
Be sure to promote your event across social media, including; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and in your newsletters or personal blogs. We would love to hear about the events and activities you have planned, so don’t forget to tag @Landcare NSW so that we can also help get the word out about your event! #landcareweek #landcarensw
It only takes a small number of people to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty but by promoting and celebrating your Landcare group, you motivate others to be a part of that process.
Landcare Week is an opportunity to connect with decision makers, landholders, volunteers, children and families.
It’s not too late to organise something! Here are some ideas:
- an open day (don’t forget to invite your local MP!)
- a field day or working day
- a planting or clean up family event to promote your program in the local community
- a party to celebrate Landcare’s 30-year anniversary
- you may wish to use resources created by Landcare Australia Limited
