The Pages River Warriors were finalists in the category Community Environmental Achievement.
A delegation attended the awards in Orange on Saturday and were invited to give a case study on their work which includes rehabilitation on the banks of the pages River and Clean Up Australia Day activities.
Lynne Mahony, who presented the case study for Murrurundi said she was pleased to be asked to present to an audience of people from across NSW.
“We are such a small community, and we were the only community group to present on the day, with other case studies coming from much larger communities and Councils,” she said.
Upper Hunter Shire Council Mayor Wayne Bedggood congratulated the Pages River Warriors.
“Council is proud to support the Murrurundi Landcare Group and the Pages River Warriors in making improvements to the environment,” he said.
“They deserve recognition for their efforts.
“The group recently received funding from Council to develop plans for a sculpture park along the proposed Pages River walk.”
