SOUTH COAST ENVIRO-EXPERIENCES

South Coast Enviro-Experiences, supported by Lotterywest, is a new project set to be delivered by South Coast NRM. It will focus on increasing capacity of organisations relying on volunteers, for both on-ground work, but also group governance, and will promote a suite of environmental volunteering opportunities over the next 18 months.

SOUTHERN SOILS

What exactly are good land management practices? There is a wealth of information available on the internet, making it very difficult for those interested in sustainable agriculture to find relevant information. This site aims to cut through the noise and present information specifically relevant to the south coast region of Western Australia across a diverse range of sustainable agricultural topics.
