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 400m of weed management and allow native regeneration to improve bank stability
  • carry out re-vegetation of creek bank sections scoured in the January 2013 flood
  • support the landholder effort to control cat’s claw creeper along the creek
  • carry out 41ha of weed management (lantana and Easter cassia), including along 400m of creek bank (cat’s claw creeper).

The landholder 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.

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 re-vegetation
  • increase landholder’s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitating the uptake of sustainable land management practices.
