From a young age, I’ve always had a passion for protecting the environment, this was instilled in me from an early age largely through both my grandfathers. Working to protect and educate with Landcare in NSW and local partners has allowed me to work on regional and state level projects which will have an effect on the environment for many years to come.
There is a number of major challenges that are affecting our local environment, landholdings and conservation areas, namely drought recovery. After a significant period of drought, we have received rain at the most unfortunate time for landholders and recovery from these events is going to be the biggest challenge facing our area as we go in to 2019.
Your donations and funding allow us to partner with programs like The Green Army. A hands-on, practical, environmental action programme to support local environmental and heritage conservation projects. The Green Army programme provides opportunities for young Australians aged 17-24 years to gain training and experience in environmental and heritage conservation fields while participating in projects that generate real benefits for the environment.
Your donations this Christmas time will provide the opportunity for us to keep giving back to the community. Through our partnerships with other local organisations, we can help empower Landcarers and protect our land resulting in a healthier environment. We are looking to create a change in behaviour, change in understanding, change in attitude, change in landscape, change in thinking and your gift will help us bring communities together. The more people that know about the projects, the greater the impact, so spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
