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 contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The environmental benefit will include rehabilitation of areas featuring endangered Regional Ecosystem 12.3.2 ‘Eucalyptus grandis woodland to open forest on alluvial plains’ and associated riparian vegetation types.

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 use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area. The project will deliver:
  • 1.2km of weed management and re-vegetation to improve bank stability along Christmas Creek
  • support to a landholder effort to control 25ha of weeds and native re-vegetation on the property
  • stabilisation of a shear section of creek bank by battering a 25m section of Christmas Creek and re-vegetation of the area
  • improved water quality in the Logan catchment
  • improved biodiversity connectivity in Oaky Creek through a reduction in weeds and improved riparian vegetation condition
  • increased landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management and will facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • 1.2km of weed management and re-vegetation along Christmas Creek
  • control of 25ha of weeds and native re-vegetation on the property
  • engineering to batter a 25m section of Christmas Creek and re-vegetation of the area.
