From the CEO
I’m pleased to provide Landcare Victoria’s November newsletter.
The Government plan to allow camping on licensed water frontages has been a significant point of concern for many in the Landcare community in the last few weeks. We reported on the issue in the October newsletter and provide an update in this issue.
The Landcare community is expressing widespread concern about the imminent end of the current round of funding for the Landcare Facilitator Program. Landcare Victoria is in regular contact with DELWP about the issue. See the report in this newsletter.
The very good news about the decline in the number of Victorian COVID19 cases and associated easing of restrictions means that volunteer group activities can re-commence with appropriate care.
