    NSW State Landcare Awards Winners Announced

    Winners for the NSW Landcare Awards have been proudly announced, recognising the outstanding contributions by locals from across the state to the environment conservation, sustainable farming, and our community.

    The NSW winners have been acknowledged during a ceremony at the Sergeants Mess, Chowder Bay Mosman, on 3 June 2024.

    The Landcare Awards honour the remarkable accomplishments of individuals, groups and organisations, dedicated to protecting the NSW natural resources and building resilient landscapes for the future. The award winners and their projects are diverse, including climate innovation, community partnerships, sustainable agriculture, youth, and collaboration with First Nations.

    Quote attributed to Minister for Agriculture, Tara Moriarty:

    “Landcarers make important and lasting contributions to communities and these awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate those efforts.

    “I congratulate all nominees for achieving great things for their local communities and thank them for their ongoing commitment.

    “Events like this remind me of how proud I am that the NSW Government committed a record $59 million to support Landcare through the NSW Landcare Enabling Program.”

    Quote attributed to Local Land Services Acting CEO, Rob Kelly:

    “The Landcare NSW and Local Land Services partnership is one we value and one that delivers important outcomes for the environment, agriculture and communities.

    “I congratulate the finalists along with all Landcare staff and volunteers for the positive role they play in communities.

    “We look forward to continuing to work with Landcare NSW to deliver positive outcomes across this state into the future.”

    Quote attributed to Landcare NSW CEO, Turlough Guerin:

    “These awards are one of the highlights of our Landcare calendar and are our chance to celebrate and recognise the amazing work that the Landcare volunteers do. It’s such a privilege to be part of this phenomenal community.”

    Quote attributed to Landcare Australia CEO, Dr Shane Norrish:

    “The NSW Landcare Award finalists have shown an exceptional level of commitment to landcare activities by restoring and protecting the natural environment where they live and work. Their achievements benefit not only our land and water assets but are helping to create partnerships and build community resilience across Australia. As we come together to celebrate and acknowledge their efforts, we also find inspiration in their hard work, and a reminder to us all that landcare is a collective effort.”

    Winners of the State & Territory Landcare Award categories will represent NSW at the 2024 National Landcare Awards to be held in late 2025.
