The upper Murrumbidgee River is a high value riverine ecosystem containing the critical aquatic habitats of several nationally listed threatened species (notably Trout cod, Murray cod and Macquarie perch). This project is all about improving fish habitat and river health in this vitally important waterway. We will be planting trees to improve habitat quality for the fish in the river, as well as creating habitat for native birds and animals.
The Upper Murrumbidgee Demonstration Reach is approximately 100 km long and runs from Bredbo in NSW to Casuarina Sands in the ACT. Roughly half its length lies in NSW and half in the ACT. Water in the reach is used for ecological, rural, urban and recreational purposes.
What you can expect:
-beautiful river landscapes
-helping conserve an important river ecosystem
Come join CVA for the day as we assist the Upper Murrumbidgee Demonstration Reach with their revegetation efforts along the river and learn about the importance and significance of the work that they do! For more information please contact the Canberra Office on 02 6247 7770.
