11 October 2018
Landholders and community members in the Western region and throughout NSW will have a great opportunity to experience the best of the outback with Broken Hill announced as the host city for the 2019 NSW Landcare and Local Land Services conference.
The conference, which will be held from 22 to 24 October 2019, will highlight some of the great work and achievements by the Landcare community and landholders in the Western region while also offering informative speakers, workshops and field trips.
The theme of the 2019 event is ‘Healthy Landcare – Healthy Landscapes’.
While the conference is still in the early stages of planning, Western Landcare NSW Executive Officer, Louise Turner, who is on the steering committee for the conference, encouraged people to save the date and start planning their travel arrangements for what promises to be a real highlight of next year.
“All of us involved in the committee are really excited this event is coming to the Western region,” Ms Turner said.
“This conference will be a great way to showcase what Landcare is all about in the Western region and showcase some of the amazing things that are being achieved by landholders and community members.
“The Western region provides such a beautiful landscape and is full of innovative and deep thinking people, as well as Aboriginal cultural heritage, and that is just part of what will be on display at the conference.”
With accommodation in Broken Hill expected to be at capacity for the event, participants are encouraged to make bookings at their earliest convenience.
Tickets for the conference will go on sale next year while announcements regarding guest speakers and field trips will be made in due course.
