The Willunga Environment Centre, along with seven other Environment and Natural Resource Centres of the Hills and Fleurieu and Northern and York Landscape Boards, have been asked to submit applications to the Minister for the Environment, the Hon. David Spiers M.P., for the continuation of core funding for the 21/22 Financial Year, through a submission to the Landscape Priorities Fund.

This funding is essential to the continuing operation of the Willunga Environment Centre, as it pays for our rent, occupancy costs and the wages of our part-time Manager Janine Anninos and our YACCA Coordinator.

The Willunga Environment Centre, and all the other Environment and Natural Resource Centres, have a rich history of environmental activism, community action and conservation/natural resources leadership. The Willunga Environment Centre staff and volunteers, in particular, have been some of the most dedicated participants in and active delivery agents of environmental activities in the local area for many years.

Overall, these community operated centres provide an integral resource to communities across South Australia and we are confident that we’ll secure the funding we need from the Landscape Priorities Fund to keep our doors open for another twelve months.

We won’t be advised until April 15 whether our application has been successful and, rest assured, you’ll be the first to know.

Please feel free to contact myself if you require any further information.

Regards, and thanks for all your support
