The Native Vegetation Heritage Agreement (NVHA) Grants Program is excited to be offering a training program to landowners with the opportunity to learn about conserving natural vegetation on your property.

The training program is building on the NVHA Grants Program, which in the first 12 months has provided support to landowners during the 200+ site visits and awarded over $2 million of grant funding to Heritage Agreement landowners across the state.

Trees For Life will deliver the training and networking session in partnership with the Landscape Boards (SA) and the Native Vegetation Branch with information sessions to support landowners in continuing to protect our state’s biodiversity.

Hear and learn from land management experts about on-ground techniques and strategies for improving habitats on your property and supporting resilience to climate change, whilst meet other Heritage Agreement owners and people involved in conservation on private lands.
