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 creek bank resilience over Upper Christmas Creek to contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The environmental benefit will include areas featuring ‘of concern’ Regional Ecosystem 12.8.9 Lophostemon confertus open-forest often with vine forest understorey (‘wet sclerophyll’) which occurs on Cainozoic igneous rocks, mostly in gullies and on exposed ridges on basalt.

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

This project will:
  • repair two eroding gullies in the upper Christmas Creek
  • repair flood plain adjacent to Christmas Creek, which is being washed out in medium to large events
  • implement sustainable land management on 35ha.

The proponent 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.

Benefits

This project will:
  • increase landholder’s 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 and biodiversity connectivity in Christmas Creek through site engineering, weed control and re-vegetation.
