About the 2021 Victorian Landcare Awards
The State and Territory Landcare Awards are coordinated nationally by Landcare Australia, with each state and territory coordinating their own awards ceremony. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning through the Victorian Landcare Program coordinates the Victorian Landcare Awards ceremony.
In addition to the eight national award categories, Victoria awards additional categories which are independently sponsored at a state level.
The Awards are a celebration of the significant work undertaken by groups, networks and individuals who contribute their time and care to the conservation of Victoria’s land, water and biodiversity.
The Victorian Government is proud to support and celebrate the efforts of those environmental volunteers who are working to the protect our land, water and wildlife, and the communities who love and depend of them.
