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 along the upper Teviot Brook to 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 12.9-10.17 ‘Open forest complex often with Eucalyptus acmenoides, E. major, E. siderophloia +/- Corymbia citriodora on sedimentary rocks’.

The project will deliver:
  • fencing on 1km of creek to stop cattle impacting 2km of creek bank, which will improve bank stability and resilience and enable natural regeneration of native riparian species within the enclosed area
  • a corridor link to the adjacent Main Range National Park
  • weed control within fenced riparian area.

The proponent will maintain the weed control undertaken in the project to protect the stream bank in the future. They will also use photo-points to monitor the weed control and riparian vegetation condition in the project area.

To increase landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices:
  • 1km of fence will be erected
  • 4.8ha weed control will be delivered within the fenced riparian area.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in the Logan catchment by enhancing riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity in Teviot Brook through weed control and stock management.
