Event description

Description

The Upper Murrumbidgee River has stunning gorges, waterfalls and stretches of river, as well as being home to some special fish. Through our Rivers of Carbon Upper Murrumbidgee River Rehabilitation project we have been connecting the Bredbo and Colinton Gorges by working with landholders in the Bumbalong Valley to fence, weed, stabilise riverbanks and revegetate with native plants.

Why have we gone to all this effort? Because we love our native fish, and one in particular, the Macquarie Perch. Come along and hear how our combined efforts with passionate locals has improved river health and contributed to better habitat for our native fish. Prue McGuffie, who has been researching Maccas in the Bidgee will give us an update on how these fish are faring, and whether improved habitat is making any difference. Antia Brademann will talk about great work we have been doing in the Upper Murrumbidgee, along with landholders Kim Templeton and Helen Shimitras.

We will meet in the Colinton Fire Shed for the first half of our get together and, after morning tea, meet down at the river where Antia will talk us through the stabilisation and other works recently accomplished.

Please come along and join us, we would love to see you.
