This year, 2021, we will be celebrating the special 30th anniversary of the VEFN Best Friend Awards (BFA). The BFA provides us with an opportunity to celebrate and promote the outstanding achievements of our environmental volunteers and their Friends groups. In doing so we also raise awareness of the breadth, depth and calibre of all the community members who work so hard and long to care for their special places and species. To mark this special anniversary, we will be holding the awards in concert with Landcare Victoria. Further details of the arrangements will be available at a later date.
