Katanning Landcare is managed by a volunteer committee of 17 Gazetted Members of the Katanning Land Conservation District Committee.
These dedicated volunteers bring experience from a range of backgrounds, from financial and administrative services, to government, and farming and environmental backgrounds.
The varied skills mean that our committee is involved, and in touch with a wide number of other concerns and touch-points across our region and further afield, ensuring that we have excellent guidance on a range of topics.
The committee structure is determined by the Soil & Land Conservation Act, and members should be selected from a number of different areas to ensure strong representation across both farming and environmental areas.
