Tucked within the Neville State Forest is one of the last intact Swampy Meadow wetland systems within our region. This important wetland is a listed Endangered Ecological Community and was under threat of being drained by an active headcut within the creek downstream from the wetland (erosion within the creek moving upstream).
A partnership between the Alliance, Neville & Region Landcare, Central Tablelands Local Land Services, Skillset Environment, Cowra Council and Forestry Corporation NSW has seen soft engineering works, utilising organic materials such as coir logs and inert compost, used to stabilise the creek and protect the Swampy Meadow.
To document the works Double Clique Media were engaged to produce a mini-documentary to explain the importance of this Swampy Meadow, the works involved to protect it and the partnership that enabled the project to get off the ground.
Join us at Two Heads Brewery in Bathurst where we will launch the video with guest expert speakers.
