Landcare Awards

The Landcare Awards acknowledge and celebrate local Landcare achievements at state and national level. Nine diverse categories showcase the achievements and history of Landcare and Coastcare, and above all recognise the invaluable contribution of tireless volunteers to both initiatives.

Anyone involved in projects that care for our land or water is welcome to apply. Within the Landcare Awards, the term 'Landcare' refers to all groups, individuals, organisations and activities that care for the land. If you are involved in protecting or improving your local environment, farm, coastline, bushland, wetland, waterway, school, region, catchment or backyard, there is a category in this year’s awards for you.

Nominate via NSW Nominations close Friday 16 June 2017.
