2021 Coastcare Award – QLD
Capricorn Coast Landcare
“Thanks for all the support from our partners but, particularly the volunteers who are great workers for our environment and a great group of people.” Malcolm Wells, President Capricorn Coast Landcare and QLD Coastcare Award Finalist.
Based in Yeppoon, Capricorn Coast Landcare was established in 1987 by Alby Woller and a group of friends. The Junior Landcare program began in 1997 in local schools around the area. In 2005, Alby received numerous Landcare and citizen awards for his efforts. Since Alby passed away in 2017, Capricorn Coast Landcare has maintained the Envirotrail in the grounds of Yeppoon State School and extended the Fig Tree Creek regeneration program. Last year the group also embarked on a Coastcare project on the dunes at Farnborough Beach.
