2017 State Community Landcare Conference, 11 to 13 September 2017
Clare, South Australia.

On behalf of the 2017 Landcare Conference Committee, the Landcare Association of SA is pleased to announce that the 2017 State Community Landcare Conference will be held from 11 to 13 September 2017, at Clare.  The Conference includes the 2017 State Landcare Award presentations.

With the theme of Celebrating Innovation and Diversity in Landcare, the Conference will showcase Landcare and natural resources programmes from across South Australia.  As in 2015, the Conference will include keynote presentations by national, state, regional and local leaders in Landcare and natural resources management. It will bring together Landcarers from across South Australia to network with peers, share experiences and ideas, acknowledge the huge achievements of the Landcare community and inspire Landcarers to continue their valuable work.

Through keynote addresses, presented papers, workshops and field tours the Conference will explore innovation and diversity in Landcare in four key streams of engagement | security | enterprise | partnerships.  These streams will integrate and address Landcare issues of Biodiversity Management and Conservation, Aboriginal Land Management, Coastal Management, Sustainable Farming and Fishing.

Conference delegates are also invited to experience natural resource management in the Northern and Yorke NRM Region, through field tours to local sites and projects.  The Conference will be held in the beautiful Clare Valley, one of South Australia’s premier wine producing regions, less than 2 hours from Adelaide.

We encourage you to keep this date for the 12th State Community Landcare Conference.  Progress with arrangements for the Conference will be posted on the LASA website and the Landcare Conference Facebook page during 2017.
