Landowners were invited to attend field-based workshops to learn how to manage local waterways on farm, including weed and pest management, fire hazard mitigation and the benefits of establishing native vegetation for biodiversity and water quality.
Hosted by local landowners and catchment groups as part of the Regional Estuaries Initiative stream restoration program, about 100 farmers joined experts to hear advice on managing areas that border rivers and streams on their properties.
The workshops are part of the REI stream restoration program which, together with catchment groups, community members and land holders, will fence 60 kilometres of priority waterways to exclude stock and plant 20 hectares of foreshore.
