2014 Woady Lifetime Achievement Awards
One reason for the success of the Woady Yaloak Catchment Project has been the dedication of many landholders who have worked quietly in landcare. As part of the 20 year anniversary celebrations, two of these quiet achievers were honoured with Lifetime Achievement Awards: Lex Hadler and John Carr. These two men have helped to shape the Woady Yaloak Project, changed their landscape and inspired others to do the same.
