Landholders and community members have a wonderful opportunity to share their experiences, acquired knowledge and outcomes with the broader Landcare community by making a submission to present at the NSW Landcare and Local Land Services conference.
The conference, which will be held in Broken Hill from Tuesday, 22 October to Thursday, 24 October, is seeking submissions that showcase an approach to building Healthy Landcare and Healthy Landscapes which is the theme of the conference.
People involved in Landcare, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, regenerative agriculture, integrated pest, weed and biosecurity management and community empowerment are encouraged to apply.
There are two options for submissions. The first is to be a presenter which will require a 15 minute presentation with five minutes available for questions while the second is to have a poster exhibit.
You can nominate to be considered specifically as a presenter or to have a poster display, otherwise simply make a submission and the conference committee will make the decision.
Local Land Services Landcare Program Manager and conference committee member, Chris McCulloch is anticipating seeing some interesting and insightful submissions.
“We are looking for presentations that link to the theme and talk about experiences, idea or innovations in supporting community to participate in all aspects of healthy landscapes,” Mr McCulloch said.
“The presentations and poster exhibits are a fantastic way to broaden the experience of attending delegates and will be one of many highlights on the conference program.”
Presenter guidelines and the expression of interest form are available on the conference website and submissions are due by Friday, 31 May.
