Upstream earthworks and revegetation enhances the Hopkins River

This project focused on controlling erosion in a small gully using earthworks to stabilise the 0.88ha site and then planting 300 Indigenous trees and shrubs. 

This gully feeds into the Hopkins River and improving water quality on the erosion site will reduce silt flowing into the Hopkins.

Adding value to this project is the adjoining hillside to the west with an excellent cover of Indigenous grasses and herbaceous plants. 

The landholder is managing this hillside to enhance its very special vegetation.
