Landcare ACT has also been busy this year - working to support you all, although you may not necessarily be quite so aware of that work – LACT’s limited resources have been put to use with a focus on doing rather than promoting – something to work on next year!
In the early part of the year we consulted our Members (and through them, you) to identify key issues for Landcarers in our region. This is summarised in Strengthening community Landcare for healthy ACT landscapes.
Since then we have focussed (especially in an ACT election year) on drawing attention to the value and importance of the work that you do to look after the places you care about.
We did this with all political persuasions before the election, have continued that dialogue after the election and will take it forward into 2017. This has also included writing to all Members of the Legislative Assembly about the importance of continuing support for community Landcare and recognising the important role of the catchment groups in supporting the community.
