The North Central region supports more than 160 Landcare and community based natural resource management (NRM) groups, and several Landcare networks. Landcare in the North Central region is about productivity, partnership, participation and people.
The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) delivers the Victorian Landcare Program, funded by the State Government. The program includes the Victorian Landcare Grants, the monthly regional newsletter 'The North Central chat', training, workshops and activities that address a range of NRM issues.
The North Central CMA also hosts the Australian Government's Regional Landcare Facilitator project, which aims to support community members to adopt sustainable land management practices and protect natural resources. The project hosts a number of workshops, short courses and field days across north central Victoria.
Would you like to improve your grant writing skills to assist in future grant applications? Are you interested in learning more about attracting new members to your Landcare group and re-energising the current members? Workshops exploring both of these topics are being held in Echuca, Huntly and St Arnaud this May.More
