Celebrating the Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative with Parliament

Building our Future -


The issue

The Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative (LLCI), launched in 2015, is a $15 million, four-year project designed to strengthen the Government-Landcare community relationship by investing in and unlocking the potential of the extensive volunteer network and Landcare movement across NSW.

With this program coming to an end of the funding scheme, the Landcare community have been busy promoting and lobbying politicians about the value of the tireless work coordinators and volunteers achieve across the state, in hopes of reinstating the funding in the next government elections.

The solution

Co-hosted with the bipartisan NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare group, Trees in the House is Landcare NSW’s yearly flagship event, and Brittany Turner Coordinator from Bland and Temora was invited to attend, along with other NSW Local Landcare Coordinators, in recognition of the important work they do every day in their local community.


The impact

Talking with politicians and other coordinators about the LachLandcare region, events, environmental projects and community involvement in this Local Landcare Coordinator program was a highlight. This opportunity to share the achievements of all our local coordinators will increase the profile of Landcare, understand the depth of community and environmental development through the program and build the case for renewing the LCCI funding into 2019 and beyond.  

Attendees from the event included: Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Water, The Hon. Nial Blair MLC, Natural Resources Commissioner Dr John Keniry AM, Landcare NSW Former Chair, Rob Dulhunty and others.
