Calling on land managers to join the resilient landscapes project
04 October 2016
Field study participants wanted!
If you are a land manager making a positive change on your property, Local Land Services Western Region is inviting you to get involved in the Western Division Resilient Landscapes Project.
“We want to work with land managers to showcase what they’ve achieved, so that others can learn from their experience,” said Gemma Turnbull from Local Land Services Western Region.
“We are looking for people who can take part in field studies to demonstrate the benefits of innovative landscape management practices.”
Expressions of interest are sought from landholders who are restoring landscape function and delivering outcomes including:
- sustainable production
- an improved natural resource base
- healthy nutrient cycling
- increased biodiversity and enhanced resilience
The Resilient Landscapes Project is a cooperative venture in knowledge and skill transfer between experienced land managers, with proven positive outcomes from resilient landscape management practices, and those seeking to preserve and improve their natural capital.
The Western Division Resilient Landscapes Project is a partnership between Local Land Services and Soils for Life, a non government, not for profit organisation that supports innovative land managers demonstrating high performance in regenerating their landscape while maintaining or increasing production.
Expressions of interest in the Resilient Landscapes Project close at 9am on Monday 24 October 2016.
