Coolum and North Shore Coast Care’s State “Landcare Award for Coast Care” award last year automatically made us finalists for the National Award, to be announced at the National Landcare Conference in Melbourne in September.

On 22 September in Melbourne it was announced that we won the National Landcare Award for Coast Care.

Such an honour! And the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication. Thank you to all our members and supporters, we couldn’t do it without you.
