MITTA VALLEY LANDCARE AGM

GUEST SPEAKER: TERRY HUBBARD OAM

After a varied working life in the Victorian Public Service, in Paua New Guinea, in Local Government and then in private enterprise, Terry moved from the Yarra Valley to Flowerdale in the early 1990's where he and Janet farm sheep and cattle on their property, The Three Sisters.

Thus began Terry's interest in restoring a run-down, weed infested and severely eroded property. In collaboration with the Goulburn Broken CMA most of the waterways on the property have now been fenced out, thousands of trees and understorey planted and subdivisional fences built to better manage stock.

Terry has held numerous positions with Landcare at State and National levels and is currently involved in merger discussions with Landcare Australia aimed at producing a single, united voice for Landcare at the National Level. Terry is currently serving on a number of advisory committees including the Riparian Advisory Forum, the Landcare Community Reference Group and the Vic Blackberry taskforce.

Terry was awarded the medal of the Order Of Australia (OAM) in the 2016 Honours list for services to conservation and the environment.
