Summary

A community consultation event occurred to understand stakeholder concerns regarding this area of endangered remnant vegetation. Access management in the form of fencing (800m) took place through reserve areas of the Landings Road reserve (Koumala) to reduce the amount of illegal vehicle access leading to weed spread, habitat destruction, soil erosion and bank slumping in this area. Riparian zone revegetation took place to stabilise the bank, prevent undercutting from boat wash and subsequent bank slumping. Future work, collaborating with Reef Catchments, will further this progress through increased educational and waterway speed limit signage.

Benefits

This project will:
  • restore habitat
  • improve water quality and shading
  • reduce weeds
  • reduce long term maintenance costs.
