Landcare ACT (LACT) is the Territory’s peak non-government organisation for landcare, the stewardship of the land by the people. LACT is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee and represents the ACT on the National Landcare Network (NLN)
The 2017 LACT workshop for Territory farmers, rural land-holders, land managers and community members considered land use at the urban-rural interface. Based on workshop findings, this position statement has been prepared by the LACT Board.
On 2 June, Mick Gentleman MLA announced that the ACT Government’s 2018-19 Budget will provide funding of $352,000 over one year to support the three Landcare catchment groups to continue to undertake catchment management in the ACT.
The ACT Catchment Groups are coordinating an Aboriginal Green Army team, running from 16 March for 23 weeks. This team will have up to nine young people aged 17-24, working on important natural and cultural sites the ACT Region.
