Today (8 Sept) Environment Minister, Lily D’Ambrosia visited the Park for National Landcare Week to announce a new ‘Community Skills Development Grant’ program for environmental volunteer groups.
A total of $600,000 is available in $5,000 grants to strengthen leadership skills in Landcare groups and $20,000 for networks and partnerships. See more here.
We are a Landcare Group and always pleased to welcome the Minister staff from her department to the Park. This time she handed out certificates of land caring to volunteering staff from corporates Transurban and the Lloyd Group for ‘getting their hands dirty’ and planted two eucalypts in the mound near the BBQ shelter. Thanks Minister!
