Congratulations to our colleague Glen Steven who has won Greening Australia’s New Leader Award. Glen helps to manage three of Greening’s properties in the Fitzgerald to Stirling section of Gondwana Link and is a leader in direct seeding technology and the use of Geographic Information Systems. Glen is also the on-ground person implementing their Gondwana Link 20 Million Trees project, which is restoring some 800ha on numerous properties across the central Zone of the Link. When we heard Glen had won a leader award we were intrigued as Glen often works on his own, even when the tractor is bogged. So who is Glen leading? This significant recognition is because Glen is leading in the development of his craft – large scale biodiverse restoration. Glen is a very easy going chap, a delight to work with – helpful, resourceful and capable. With his self-help approach, ability to problem solve and unwavering good humour, Glen is leading by example. Well done Glen.
