Have your say on our National Landcare Programme

1/8/2014

Federal Member for O’Connor Rick Wilson MP has announced the opening of the online consultation survey giving people the opportunity to have their say on how the National Landcare Programme could benefit the local area.

The Australian Government is encouraging participation from all types of people and organisations including farmers, environmental groups, local Landcare bodies and natural resource management organisations.

Mr Wilson said the consultation survey is a great opportunity for communities to help shape the programme and allows regional and remote areas to have their voices heard.

“We want to work with regional natural resource management organisations, Landcare groups, community organisations and individuals to deliver simple, local and long-term solutions to environmental challenges,” he said.

The Australian Government is committed to empowering local communities to undertake projects with long-term benefits, based on local and regional priorities.

“The consultation survey is a great opportunity for communities to help shape the programme and I encourage people to participate in this process,” Mr Wilson said.

The survey goes live on Monday 4 August, to participate visit www.nrm.gov.au.
