2019 marks 30 Years of Landcare in the Hunter Region

To celebrate this milestone, HRLN is pulling out all the stops.  You may have seen a preview at the Tocal Field Days.

30 Year Book

First, HRLN is putting together a 30 Year Book of your Landcare Stories, past and present.  You need to be in it. So if you haven’t sent your story in yet, please do so ASAP.  (The design is already underway).  

 

Resource kit

 Second, to celebrate 30 years of Landcare, HRLN has developed a fantastic Resource Kit for our existing Member groups and Individual Members, with support from the 2018-19 Partnership funding from Hunter Local Land Services.  We will be presenting these to you in the next couple of months.
