Young people involved in Landcare are being encouraged to submit a nomination for the Junior Landcare Team Award in the 2013 State and Territory Landcare Awards.

Landcare is a community based volunteer movement made up of individuals and groups who work on managing environmental issues in their local areas. Landcare groups can work on a diverse range of environmental projects and fall under a wide range of names including Rivercare, Bushcare, Coastcare, Friends of, and Dunecare. Landcare also includes farmers embracing sustainable farm management and any community group that partakes in volunteer environmental activities.

The Junior Landcare Team Award category recognises an outstanding youth organisation or young Landcare team that contributes to raising awareness, knowledge and understanding of Landcare amongst young people up to the age of 18.

Jane Stewart of Landcare Australia encourages people to get involved and nominate their local Landcarers today.

“The Landcare Awards are a fantastic way of sharing the inspirational stories from the Landcare movement and celebrating the amazing work being done,” she said.

“As we encourage people across Australia to get involved with Landcare in their everyday lives, celebrating the young people and groups is the perfect way of showcasing just how strong and vibrant Landcare is.”
