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 benefits will include 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. They will use photo-points to monitor the weed control and riparian vegetation condition in the project area. 

The project will deliver:
  • 4.9ha weed control (primarily cat’s claw removal and control) along 980m of Teviot Brook to protect native vegetation, encourage native re-vegetation to improve bank stability
  • support the landholder’s efforts to control cat’s claw and other weeds throughout the remainder of the property.

Benefits

This project aims to:
  • increase landholder’s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and to facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • improve water quality in the Teviot Brook through a reduction in weeds and improved riparian vegetation condition.
