The ACT government provides significant support to Landcare through funding partnership programs, grants programs and community stewardship programs, and I would like to acknowledge Landcare ACT as the peak representative body for community land care in the ACT region. They support over 70 Landcare groups and thousands of on-ground environmental volunteers in our region, through both the ParkCare and Urban Landcare programs. Landcare ACT and the three catchment groups, Ginninderra Catchment Group, Southern ACT Catchment Group and the Molonglo Conservation Group, play a key role in volunteer coordination and providing critical services to the ACT.
Whilst the current round of the national Landcare program is due to finish at the end of this financial year, I look forward to what the ACT government can achieve in 2023 through to 2038 and the outcomes of the new phase of natural resource management funding.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
