I'd like to extend to you all today our thanks in what kicks off a week of celebrating volunteer involvement across the nation during 'National Volunteer Week'.
We have a wonderful organisation that's supported by 1100 individuals who've all contributed to every aspect of what we do across the nation. Even during this time of isolation, our volunteers have been coming together to support us in the most diverse ways and have been strengthening their networks with each other.
Today it's my great pleasure to announce the winners of the 2020 Volunteer Photo Competition. Thanks to Steve Parish OAM, for once again judging and for providing his expertise in how to take better photos through our social media.
Now without further ado – the 2020 overall winner is Tara Harrold with a beautiful image of fixing fences on our Cravens Peak Reserve in Queensland. Steve Parish advised that he selected this image due to the balance, design, colour, environment, Bush Heritage philosphy and the overall story.
The winners of each of the categories are:
Flora: Geoff Corrick

Fauna: Brad Maryan

Landscape: Joanne Flint

People: Tara Harrold

These winners will now be available to be featured throughout our publications for the next 12 months.
I’d now like to take the opportunity on behalf of the Bush Heritage Board, our managers and staff to thank each and every one of you for your continuing support, inspiration and passion to engage in the work that we do each year.
Have a happy National Volunteer Week 2020.
