    The 2021 annual Coordinators Choice Award has been announced as Dumaresq Landcare Group member Peter Metcalfe.

    The announcement was made at the recent 2021 Annual General Meeting of the organisation.

    Each year, the staff team at Southern New England Landcare Ltd make this award in recognition of a member, who has shown commitment and support to the team.

    Karen Zirkler, Executive Officer at Southern New England Landcare said that in choosing the recipient, the team ask themselves, ‘Who has been the most supportive of coordinator sanity this year?’

    Karen spoke on behalf of the team to congratulate Peter, saying, “Peter has a quiet, thoughtful wisdom that has a very balancing effect on everyone when things get a bit hectic in the Landcare office.”

    Peter has been a long-term member of Dumaresq Landcare Group and has volunteered on the board for several years.

    He is one of Southern New England Landcare’s Agroforestry Peer Group mentors and is always keen to help identify vegetation when required.

    Peter has a special love of native orchids and even donates the odd potted specimen for display in the office.

    During the last 12 months, Peter has helped the team by being part of the Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership Project Steering Committee.

    When asked why he loves to remain involved, Peter said, “I can see the effect Landcare has had on the New England.”

    “The effect as you drive around is quite impressive when you take note,” he said.

    Southern New England Landcare congratulates Peter on the award and looks forward to many more years of his involvement.
