In this 2014 Landcare Week, the Central Tablelands Local Lands Services (LLS) would like to celebrate, acknowledge and extend gratitude to the hard working and dedicated Landcarers of the Central Tablelands region.
Although many of you may have not met your local LLS staff in this new region, I would like to take this opportunity give a short update on how LLS is working and supporting Landcare in your region.
My position is a Landcare and Education Officer for the Central Tablelands, I am very enthusiastic to work with you all, and those of you I have not met yet.
The Central Tablelands region had a strong presence at the NSW State Landcare & LLS forum in Dubbo in May. Our region was represented by 5 overarching Landcare groups: Little River, Watershed, Lachlandcare, Central Tablelands and individuals from the Lithgow/Oberon area.
Central Tablelands LLS General Manager Peter Sparkes and Ian Armstrong, Chairman of Central Tablelands LLS also attended the 2 day forum.
Priorities brought up at the meeting were consultation, partnerships, and the formation of a Landcare network.
Over the next few months LLS staff will be heading out to meet the Landcare community and consult with groups to learn more about their communities and the challenges they face. We have established a Landcare buddy system to ensure local staff members are involved with Landcare groups in their community and are working on a process to introduce the buddies to all their groups.
In the near future a regular radio segment to promote Landcare in the Central Tablelands is on the cards, we will be looking for info from all our groups, so please send me your newsletters if you would like some events promoted.
This email update, is the first of what will be a fortnightly update on whats happening with LLS and Landcare from across the region. You can also keep up to date by subscribing to the Central Tablelands LLS eNewsletter at: http://centraltablelands.lls.nsw.gov.au/resource-hub/newsletters
If you would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me or any LLS office.
