Environmental volunteer managers forum – 28 & 29 July 2021
Posted on 16 June, 2021 by Frances
We treasure our environmental volunteers and the amazing work they do in our region to restore and rebalance our landscapes for generations to come. We have clocked over 11,000 volunteer hours at Connecting Country, since beginning in 2007, and could not continue without our volunteer network.
The Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DEWLP) is developing a forum for Environmental Volunteer Managers (EVM), which might be of interest to some of our community and stakeholders. Please see the details, which highlight Victoria’s first statewide ideas exchange and professional development opportunity designed especially for professional environmental volunteer managers.
