Ipswich City Council Enviro Organisation Award
Our CEO, Steve Lacey, was honoured to accept the 2019 Ipswich City Council Enviro Organisation Award on behalf of the QTFN team.
The award recognised multiple activities to support threatened species and control predators at our 2000 ha cattle property, Aroona Station, 55km southwest of Ipswich.
In accepting the award, Steve acknowledged the phenomenal legacy of Dr Robin and Kathleen Stock who donated Aroona to QTFN in 2015. Their desire to see Aroona sustainably managed for both its production and conservation value, inspires our ambitious work at the property.
Congratulations to joint Enviro Organisation Award winner, Springfield Lakes Nature Care, recognised for delivering environmental projects and events around Ipswich.
Thanks to our cattle manager, Chris Schreiweis, education partner Wonder of Science, delivery, project and business partners, as well as many community volunteers for helping us achieve our vision for Aroona.
