Summary

This project seeks to remove cat’s claw creeper from 478km of the Dumaresq River catchment, an area of 22,652ha. The removal of cat’s claw creeper will form a critical part of a larger riverine health project allowing native understory to regenerate. The project will involve over 100 landholders.

Benefits

This project will:
  • enhance overall riverine health and improve biodiversity values along a 478km stretch of the Dumaresq River catchment
  • regenerate native understory by undertaking the spraying of cat’s claw creeper, which in turn will benefit soil stability during times of high rainfall, thus reducing the chance of bank slumping.
