Funding for Catchment Management

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 three groups – Ginninderra Catchment Group, Molonglo Catchment Group, and the Southern ACT Catchment Group – play a crucial role in the support of urban-based Landcare groups to help regenerate and preserve the ACT’s natural environment.

This is most welcome news and Landcare ACT look forward to continuing to work with the ACT Government and officials to keep the ACT looking and functioning as the Bush Capital; beneficial for residents, attractive to tourists, a vital contribution to climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as key to biodiversity conservation
