Cape York hosts RLF state meeting in Cooktown
by Andrew Hartwig - Regional Landcare Facilitator, Cape York Peninsula.
Cape York recently hosted the State Regional Landcare Facilitators workshop. The workshop was attended by RLF’s from throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory, and a Federal Department of Agriculture and Fisheries representative.
A range of local guest speakers highlighted the challenges of sustainable agriculture and the importance of Landcare partnerships on Cape York. The workshop was held at Natures Powerhouse followed by a field day including Normanby and Fairview Stations, Spring Creek and the Lakeland horticultural area.
The network would like to thank Cape York Natural Resource Management and the National Landcare Programme for hosting the workshop which allowed for valuable knowledge exchange, and an appreciation of those helping to manage our unique and beautiful landscape.
The Regional Landcare Facilitator Programme is supported through funding from the Australian
Government's National Landcare Programme. Cape York's Regional Landcare Facilitator is hosted by Cape York NRM.
