The project will investigate a long-term management program to reduce the impact of weeds, specifically cat’s claw creeper (CCC), on riparian vegetation in the Three Moon and Monal Creek. It will utilise physical, biological and chemical mechanisms to reduce and manage CCC in the uppermost reaches of the Burnett River.


This project will:
  • enhance landholder and community awareness, knowledge and understanding of the impacts of weed infestation in riparian ecosystems, and involve them in the process of removing detrimental riparian weeds, such as cat’s claw creeper
  • provide landholders with the capacity to remove riparian weeds, enhance biodiversity values of riparian vegetation, reduce erosion and support healthy riparian ecosystem functions.
