Kathleen Brack – VIC
Kathleen Brack is the regional Landcare program officer for the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority. After just three years in the role Kathleen has changed the way the Landcare story is being told in the region. She has created new messages and found innovative ways of engaging with her community. Keen to attract more young people to Landcare, Kathleen ran an Intrepid Landcare Retreat at Wilsons Promontory for 20 people aged 18 to 35. The participants learnt about Landcare, talked, hiked and worked with the local friends group. Graduates from the retreat have gone on to form the Gippsland Intrepid Landcare Group.
