RIVER RESTORATION RAMBLE – unique partnership stories of catchment restoration
This journey through the mid-Brisbane and Lockyer Valley catchments will visit three project sites where catchment restoration projects have been undertaken, particularly since the devastating floods of 2011 and 2013. Soil loss and salinity from this region that produces 19% of Queensland’s annual vegetable production impacts on the water supply of Brisbane and the water quality of Moreton Bay. Black Snake Creek catchment management addresses high surface water salinity, the University of Queensland Gatton campus project repaired a major streambank erosion site, and Mulgowie Farming Company river restoration project is a large scale pile field for streambank stabilisation. All projects involve a mix of community, industry, research and regional NRM partnerships
Cost: $45 per person (includes transport, morning tea, lunch, water and snacks)
