Landcare has played a leading role in changing Australia’s approach to sustainable agricultural practices, environmental protection, conservation of land and waterways, coastlines, biodiversity and landscapes.
The 2019 State & Territory Landcare Awards profiles individuals and groups from urban and rural communities who are working together to care for our country.
From the coast to the country, and from cities to the outback, Landcare’s greatest asset is its people - all motivated by a shared vision to restore and protect the environment in their local community.
For over 20 years, the Landcare Awards have recognised and celebrated the achievements of groups and individuals in the Landcare community who have made a significant contribution to the environment, sustainable farming practices and natural resource management.
This prestigious awards program acknowledges Landcare projects that are focused on sustainable farming, biodiversity and conservation, community and wellbeing, Indigenous land management, Coastcare, youth participation and leadership.
In 2019, Landcare celebrates its 30-year anniversary. Over the past 30 years, Landcare has evolved into a powerful movement of volunteers who donate their time, skills, and expertise for the benefit of the environment, and the communities that seek to protect it.

The awards dinner will be hosted in Tasmania by Andrew Marlton "Welcome to the moon!" FDotM

First Dog on the Moon cartoonist at The Guardian, and winner of the Walkley Award, will be hosting the Landcare Tasmania awards dinner!
