Landscapes and natural resources are managed and sustained

What success looks like

An integrated whole-of-landscape approach to natural resources management has empowered, resilient regional communities working collaboratively to help ensure the sustainable management and productive use of the state’s natural resources.

  • support Landscape boards to develop five-year regional plans that focus on soil and water management, pest plant and animal control, and nature stewardship

  • develop a state landscape strategy that provides a vision for managing the state’s natural resources and establishes funding principles for the Landscape Priorities Fund
