Growing sustainable communities
25 years of Landcare
1986 – 2011
In November a number of events will be held around the state to mark the 25th Anniversary of Landcare.
One of the highlights will be a full day conference to be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday 15th November 2011.
The conference invites landcarers and supporters to come together for a day of exciting presentations and interactive sessions and provides the opportunity to:
· share successes over 25 years with inspiring stories of landscape change
· learn about growing the landcare movement in the next 25 years
· meet landcarers and likeminded people from around the state.
