One leads directly to the other!
Poor water and streamside management inevitably leads to catchment degradation.
By fencing and protecting a stream, or spring along with about 40 m of it's adjacent vegetation, you can pretty much guarantee the medium-term survival of that patch of vegetation. Our landscape, the Tableland, provides a highly fragmented habitat for our local plants and animals. By increasing the connections between fragments, the landscape, nature and the human community will all be better off. Our group has helped dozens of farmers to protect their streams and springs. We have attracted funding, from several government programs, that has assisted with the cost of fencing and off-stream water for stock. We work closely with the field staff of the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority.
