BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Basil Schur, who has just won the ‘Individual Landcarer’ Award at the WA Landcare Awards. Basil has been a passionate, energetic and dedicated worker for the environment for nearly four decades, initiating and implementing a huge range of projects and events. He leads to involvement of Green Skills in Gondwana Link, and pops up with great projects in numerous parts of the Link, and was pivotal in the early expansion of Gondwana Link projects to west of the Stirllng Ranges. This is great recognition for a great fella! (and, as one of the benefits of wearing two hats, Basil’s win was announced and he was presented with his award at the gala dinner in Mindarie by Keith Bradby, Chair of the WA Landcare Network, whose day job is CEO of Gondwana Link). “As someone who has known and worked with Basil for much of his adult life, and most particularly over the last seventeen years in Gondwana Link, I could not think of a more worthy recipient” says Keith (who notes he wasn’t on the judging panel!) “Basil epitomises the strength of community driven conservation – energy, ingenuity, diversity, tenacity”. Basil will represent WA at the National Landcare Awards in 2020. Goodonya Basil!
