WICC receives $104,655.00 to restore vegetation (September 2009)

The project aims to improve water quality in the Wilson Inlet catchment by erecting fencing to exclude stock, revegetating with local native plants and establishing deep-rooted perenial pastures. Improving the vergetation would provide buffers to reduce nutrient export from the catchment and also stabilise the soil. It will also increase the potential for wildlife to use riparian vegetation as a corridor.

the project will also promote activities to increase landowner awareness of effective nutrient management through soil testing and nutrient management workshops.
