Summary

This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Upper Teviot Brook Sub-catchment Management Project, an initiative supported by project partners Seqwater, Scenic Rim Regional Council, Scenic Rim Rivers Improvement Trust, and the Australian Government's Caring for Our Country program.
The project will control weeds, restore native vegetation and stabilise eroding banks over a 1ha area along 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 endangered Regional Ecosystem 12.3.3 "Eucalyptus tereticornis woodland to open forest on alluvial plains".
As part of this project:
1.  0.75ha of riparian weed control will be undertaken to protect and restore native vegetation, target species include cats claw vine and Chinese elm.
2.  3000m2 of soil conservation earthworks and revegetation to stabilise 3 creek bank erosion sites.
The landholders will maintain the infrastructure established in the project. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area. To improve water quality in the Logan catchment by improving riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity in Teviot Brook.
To facilitate the uptake of sustainable land management practices through increasing landholders' knowledge and skills in natural resource management.
1.  0.75ha of riparian weed control undertaken (mainly cats claw creeper and Chinese elm).
2.  3000m2 of soil conservation earthworks and revegetation to stabilise 3 creek bank erosion sites.
