Aboriginal cultural knowledge and landcare

In 2021, the HRLN will be working collaboratively on a number of cultural projects and programs to help us better understand Aboriginal culture in the Hunter region past and present, and to see how we can incorporate this knowledge into our everyday landcare operations.

We are planning workshops and field days in Aboriginal cultural awareness and due diligence, learning about local Aboriginal words and languages so we can better describe our regional plants and animal species, and hosting events to showcase how Landcare and Aboriginal culture combined creates a path forward for managing our precious land and seas.
