The team at Landcare SJ is excited to welcome Chris Kennedy. Chris will be working on the State NRM Capacity Grant Measuring NRM Success project.
Here is a short summary from Chris –
Hi, my name is Chris, I have recently moved to Serpentine with my wife and 2-year-old daughter and I am also the new member of the Landcare SJ team, on a six-month contract.
My background is a mixture of NRM, Environmental Science and Hydrography. My most recent employment was with Wheatbelt NRM in Northam as a project delivery officer in the Sustainable Industries team where I was responsible for coordinating and delivering a number of agricultural trials.
I have also worked throughout the NT for over ten years, including Melville Island (Tiwi Islands) as a Land Evaluation Officer in the forestry industry and in Kakadu National Park as a Hydrographer for Ranger Uranium Mine.
My interests outside of work include designing and making timber furniture (particularly out of recycled timber), trying to play golf and gardening. I have been very fortunate to work and live in some amazing places around Australia and I consider the Serpentine Jarrahdale region to be one of them and think we will enjoy living here for a long time.
Feel free to pop into the Landcare SJ centre to say hello.
