Summary

This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Upper Logan Resilience project, an initiative supported by project partners Seqwater, in collaboration with Scenic Rim Regional Council.

The project will facilitate the control of weeds to restore native vegetation and creek bank resilience over Upper Christmas Creek to Waterfall Creek and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The environmental benefits will include improving the condition of native vegetation containing Regional Ecosystem 12.8.4 ‘Complex notophyll vine forest with Araucaria spp. on Cainozoic igneous rocks’ and associated riparian vegetation types.

The landholder will maintain the weed control undertaken in the project and complement this with re-vegetation along the creek bank where required. They will also use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area.

This project will:
  • deliver 5ha of native vegetation with improved condition
  • deliver 5ha of weed control along the banks of Waterfall Creek and Christmas Creek
  • establish a wildlife corridor though the property ‘Wongari’ from the national park at the back of the property to the national park adjoining the front of the property along Christmas Creek
  • fence off Waterfall Creek to cattle (865m fence), with landholder to pay for fence erection
  • stabilise a landslip adjoining Christmas Creek through planting 0.3ha.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve biodiversity in the upper Logan catchment by establishing a wildlife corridor through the property
  • increase landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • improve water quality in the Logan catchment by enhancing riparian vegetation condition along Christmas Creek through weed control, re-vegetation and stock management.
