Restoring, Protecting and Rehydrating the Upper Mooki Catchment 

26-08-2022 14:48

In 2020, Upper Mooki Landcare Inc (UMLC) members, across 13 properties, managing 28,000 Ha, partnered with North West Local Land Services and Tamworth Regional Landcare, to create and implement an ambitious project to commence the re-hydration of the Upper Mooki Catchment, facilitating drought recovery and a path for sustainable land use in the face of a changing climate.

Adopting a systemic approach to restoration — combining on-ground works, changes to farming practices, and capacity building — the presentation will explore the benefits of this innovative project, one of only a few of its kind in Australia. Together, the work of the Upper Mooki Landcare Group, Craig Carter (landholder), and Tim Watts (Local Land Services) has been able to increase groundcover, re-establish hydrological and ecological functions, rebuild agricultural and environmental productivity, increase drought resistance and resilience, and build an engaged and collaborative community of practice in the process, facilitating a problem-solving approach to achieve sustainable restoration solutions.

Presenter: Craig Carter, Timothy Watts.
Powerpoint slides: Restoring, Protecting and Rehydrating Upper Mooki Catchment.
