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 0.4km 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, 600m of riparian fencing and an off-stream water point will be established to facilitate the management of 6ha 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 21ha 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.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in the Logan catchment by improving the condition and connectivity of riparian vegetation along Running Creek
  • increase landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • construct 600m of riparian fencing
  • establish a one off-stream water point
  • improve management of 6ha of riparian area
  • establish sub-divisional fencing to facilitate the implementation of rotational grazing over 21ha.
