NRM Community Network Forum: April 2011

A group of NRM practitioners and ‘care’ group volunteers recently spent a morning together to exchange ideas and hear about some best-practice community projects happening around the region.

Guest speaker at the forum, Wendy Minato, gave a fantastic presentation on findings from her PhD research into the role of social norms and their influence on land management practices in a small rural community in Victoria.

Other presentations included an overview of the “adopt a shoreline” project, the Nature Nub website (see Get Involved for more information about this project), Tasmanian Landcare Association’s Extra Hands program and a coastal shorebird protection project happening on the East coast.

Presentations from the forum can be viewed below.
