Summary

This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Running Creek Sub-catchment Management Plan. The project will facilitate the management of stock access to a 650m section of Running Creek to reduce streambank erosion and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment.

As part of this project, 650m of riparian fencing will be established. The fencing will also facilitate the protection of 8ha of native rainforest vegetation of the streambank and adjacent slopes.

The landholders will establish and maintain the fencing using their own equipment and labour.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in the Running Creek sub-catchment by improving riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity
  • increase landholder’s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and increase uptake of sustainable land management practices.
