More than 100 environmental professionals and community members from across the South West met in Bunbury over 19-20 November 2015 to share their passion for Landcare.

Hosted by SWCC at Koombana Bay Sailing Club, the two-day South West Celebration event featured presentations from Natural Resource Management (NRM) experts, State Government agencies, landholders, industry and community groups.

Working with the theme ‘Innovative NRM – Doing more with less’, participants tried several creativity-boosting strategies provided by Inventium’s Helen Barclay and received tips on effective communication from CSIRO ecologist Ashley Sparrow.
