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 and Carneys Creek to contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The environmental benefits will include improving the condition of the riparian zone along Teviot Brook.

The project will:
  • deliver 3.8km of weed management and allow natural regeneration of native riparian species to improve bank stability
  • support landholder effort to control cat’s claw, celtis and Easter cassia
  • fence off a section of tributary to the Teviot Brook for stock management.

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 has:
  • carried out 19ha of weed control (cat’s claw, celtis and Easter cassia), including along 3.8km of riparian zone
  • erected 250m of fence.

Benefits

The project will:
increase landholder’s knowledge and skills in natural resource management and facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices
  • project aims to improve water quality in the Logan catchment by enhancing riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity in Carneys Creek and Teviot Brook through weed control, re-vegetation and stock management.
