Our former President over many years, Fourth Creek and First Falls Project Coordinator as well as being a passionate leader in our group has been awarded the Australian Government Individual Landcarer Award for South Australia.
Liz is a dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate volunteer who produces outstanding biodiversity and community engagement outcomes through Landcare activities in her local Mount Lofty Ranges. Liz has always had a passion for the outdoors and upon retiring in 2009 she followed a passion for learning more about the native flora and fauna in her local conservation parks. This has led to her now to be one of the most highly regarded volunteers in the region producing remarkable bushcare work that spans over 1,464 ha of high quality native bushland and all while engaging, encouraging and inspiring the community.
Liz will travel to Sydney in August to represent South Australia at the Australian Landcare Conference. She will be in the running for the Australian Landcarer of the year award as will be all the other winners from each state.
The National Landcare Conference will be held in Sydney on the 23rd - 25th of August! It is open for everyone to attend and will also be hosted virtually online. You can read more about it on the National Landcare Conference website.
