Glen Innes Natural Resources Advisory Committee
The Glen Innes Natural Resources Advisory Committee (GLENRAC) was formed on 22nd June 1989 by a group of people interested in land management and land conservation issues in the local area. GLENRAC became an incorporated body in 1992.
GLENRAC celebrates 25 years of service to the community of Glen Innes this year, 2014.
GLENRAC works in unison with landholders, local government agencies, and Federal and State government departments such as the Department of Environment & Climate Change and Office of Water, NSW Department of Primary Industries, and the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.
