Membership is being defined as being on our mailing list or being part of a Landcare group in the Central Tablelands Landcare region.  Please use this link to send an email to Marita at if you would like to be considered for registration support - you will need to provide answers to a few basic questions about why Landcare should fund your place at the conference.  We will be funding attendance at a workshop, and either one or two days at the conference or a full conference package including social events (value up to over $300). What a great opportunity to assist you in getting to the conference. We will be assessing application weekly starting Friday 6th April - so get you EOI in early so that you do not miss out.
