Stream Fencing Management Workshops

These workshops aim to assist all landholders in flood-prone areas to better understand riverine processes and design fences that minimise the risk of damage due to a flood and that are easy to repair and maintain when floodwater recedes, increasing the longevity of the fence.

Presenters

Julian Martin - Principal Engineer, Water Technology

Herbert Staubmann - Owner & Operator, Habitat Plants

Matt Cook - Owner & Operator, MJ Cook Agricultural Supplies

Jimmy Collinson - Owner & operator, Wildlands (Ross only)

Landholders will also hear about grant funding that is available to improve river health, by restricting stock access to waterways and improving effluent management on dairy farms.

Landholders in the Meander, North and South Esk, Lake River, Brumbys, Macquarie and kanamaluka/Tamar catchments are encouraged to attend.
