We would like to thank all our sponsors for their generous support of Landcare Tasmania’s 25th anniversary celebrations, held in and around Hobart from Friday 25- Sunday 27 October.
Over 300 people participated in the various weekend events, most of which were sold out or booked to capacity.
Highlights included 27 deserving Tasmanians being recognised at Government House including the inaugural Tasmanian Premier’s Landcare Award, Welcome to Country with official welcome ceremony on the Hobart Queens Domain on Friday night. The Saturday conference included 43 presentations on an enormous variety of topics at Blundstone Arena, our first ever stream dedicated to 10 – 11 years old school students, inspiring trade stalls and displays and a Landcare Tasmania 25 year historical timeline. Saturday night our State Awards Dinner was hosted by the Guardian’s cartoonist First Dog on the Moon, with 9 awards presented to Landcarers who are now finalists in the 2020 National Landcare Awards, finishing with fantastic raffle of generously donated prizes. The weekend was rounded off with 5 inspiring field trips to Landcare sites around south east Tasmania on the Sunday.
That’s one big weekend and it wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of the following sponsors. Sponsorship helped make the event more accessible to a large number of people and enabled us to design a rich and fulfilling program that will help Tasmania’s Landcarers build resilience, succession plan, network and stay ahead of weeds, pests and environmental factors on their future journeys caring for our land and waterways.
