Summary

As part of this project, 750m of riparian fencing and an off-stream water point will be established to facilitate the management of 3.3ha of riparian area. Sub-divisional fencing established as part of the project will also support a rotational grazing system which will result in improved management over 14.1ha of land for soil health outcomes.

The landholders will maintain the infrastructure established in the project. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area.

Improved water quality in the Logan catchment will be established through improved riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity in Running Creek.

Benefits

This project will:
  • increase landholder’s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • undertake 750m of riparian fencing and construct an off-stream water point
  • improve management of 3.3ha of riparian area
  • establish sub-divisional fencing
  • implement a rotational grazing system on 14.1ha.
