Mark Coulton MP, Federal Member for Parkes

Landcare award nominations now open, says Coulton

Friday, 12 May 2017

Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton is urging interested locals to take the time to nominate those people working hard protecting  the environment and delivering more sustainable agriculture in the region for the 2017 State Landcare Awards.
Mr Coulton said local Landcare groups and volunteers deserved to be recognised for their passion and commitment.
“Landcare is an important part of the Australian Government’s billion dollar plus investment in improving the condition of our natural resources including soil health,” he said.
“As a result it is vital we acknowledge those individuals, partnerships and organisations that are carrying out this essential work.”
Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister, Luke Hartsuyker said Landcare Australia has more than 6,000 groups and more than 100,000 volunteers. 
“As we head into National Volunteer Week, these awards are not only a timely reminder to encourage people to get involved in their local community but also an opportunity to acknowledge the many significant environmental and agricultural outcomes being achieved,” Mr Hartsuyker said.
“We can’t have a sustainable agricultural industry without looking after its productive base - soil management, weed, pest and disease management, water management and biodiversity.
 “Agriculture relies heavily on the health of the natural environment and the Australian Government is proud to acknowledge those dedicated to protecting it for future generations.”
This year there are nine categories in the state and territory Landcare awards including sustainable farming, indigenous land management, young land carers, coast care and innovation.
Nominations for the NSW Landcare awards open today [9 May] and close 16 June, 2017. Anyone interested in finding out more or submitting a nomination can visit
