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

The project will deliver:
  • 35m of weed management along Teviot Brook to protect native vegetation, encourage native re-vegetation regeneration and to improve bank stability
  • support to the landholder’s effort to control cat’s claw creeper (Macfadyena unguis-cati) along the creek
  • improved water quality in the Logan catchment.

Benefits

The project aims to:
  • improve biodiversity in the Logan catchment by reducing weeds and increasing riparian vegetation condition in Teviot Brook
  • increase landholder‘s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices.
