Hunter Region Landcare Network Workshop Grants 2021-22 for Member Groups

Thanks to the generous support of the Hunter Local Land Services, HRLN once again has funding available for a series of Field days/workshops, hosted by our Member Groups, on topics of interest to the Landcarers in their local area. If successful, your Group will receive up to $1500 for holding the event which will improve the skills and capacity of the Landcarers in your local area. This funding allows for guest presenters, catering and other costs of hosting the workshop. It also provides general support for expenses the group may incur in carrying out Landcare activities or projects throughout the year. The workshop must be held before 31 May 2022.
