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 The Upper Teviot Brook to contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The environmental benefit will include the rehabilitation of areas featuring endangered Regional Ecosystem 12.8.19, ‘Montane shrubland on Cainozoic igneous rocks’. The proponent will maintain the weed control undertaken in the project to protect the stream bank into the future. The contractor, ‘Trees Land Carbon’, will use photo-points to monitor the weed control and riparian vegetation condition in the project area.

The project will deliver:
  • 780m of weed management along the Teviot Brook to protect native vegetation, and encourage native re-vegetation to improve bank stability
  • support the landholder’s efforts to control cat’s claw along the creek.

The landholder will organise and work directly with the contractor to implement this project.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in the Logan catchment by reducing weeds and improving riparian vegetation condition along Teviot Brook
  • improve biodiversity in the Logan catchment by reducing weeds and improving riparian vegetation condition and connectivity along Teviot Brook
  • increase landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management
  • facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices.
