Project Habitat Restoration Project - Water Reserve and Surrounds, Geengee (Cabarlah)
Program Name NRM
Organisation Toowoomba Landcare Group
Project Identifier 38859
Project Description The project will involve fencing weed control and the re-establishment of native vegetation on an old weed infested 1.25ha water reserve in the Reedy Creek subcatchment. The project will link up with a recently completed neighbourhood Bushcare project along Reedy Creek which runs through the reserve. The project will become part of the catchment protection measures for Cooby Dam a major water source for Toowoomba City. Monitoring of the effectiveness of weed control during the project will lead to increased awareness of local landcare issues and will enhance environmental management skills. To capitalise on this new knowledge and preparedness for on-ground works the project will provide financial support to local landholders to encourage further restoration/protection measures in the Reedy Creek subcatchment.
Funding (2002/2003) $27,272
