Controlling the creep of Cat's Claw along the Dumaresq River

Recipient: Inglewood and Texas Landcare Association Inc

Amount funded
$100,000.00
Round
Round 2
Region
Border Rivers Maranoa-Balonne

Summary

This project seeks to remove Cat's Claw Creeper from 478 km of the Dumaresq River catchment, totalling 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 to the community

This project will enhance the overall riverine health and improve the biodiversity values along 478km stretch of the Dumaresq River catchment. The spraying of Cat's Claw creeper will allow native understory to regenerate, which will in turn have great benefit for soil stability during times of high rainfall, reducing the chance of bank slumping.
