The ARTC Junior Landcare Grants 2018 was a fun and educational program, which successfully
encouraged the engagement of youth in Junior Landcare activities in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales.

The positive outcomes of the program were demonstrated by the completion of an array amazing projects, and in the positive feedback received. The types of projects were varied, showing the creativeness and adaptability of those involved, and a drive from students, teachers and their communities to learn more about sustaining the environment around them.

Twenty-nine schools were awarded grants to implement projects which lead to an increase in school participation in the management of natural resources and improvement of the natural environment at schools located close to the ARTC rail network.
