40 Landcare practitioners came together at the WA Landcare Network Forum held on 15th May 2016 at Fairbridge Village, Pinjarra, Western Australia to hear stories from each other and get tips from polliticians on how to communicate with local MP’s.
There was useful info about how to get the best from social media.
Landcare groups in Western Australia have formed a peak Landcare body, WA Landcare Network Inc (WALN), to directly represent and support landcare groups across the state at the national level. WALN is effectively owned by the grassroots Landcarers. The operations of WALN is focused on providing improved support, coordination and capacity building to landcare groups and increase landcare’s input into NRM decision making. This is in line with WALN mission statement:To establish an operating and useful landcare network in Western Australia that supports and strengthens the ability of member groups to undertake their work and have strong national support and involvement.(http://www.landcarewa.org.au/)
