12126: Building community and industry capacity to achieve water quality outcomes
This project will continue GeoCatch's successful "Bay OK" program which aims to increase awareness in the general community of the importance of managing water quality in the Geographe Catchment.
The program focuses on involving farmers, businesses and urban residents in reducing nutrients entering the waterways in the catchment and ultimately the Bay.
This project will contribute to the program by delivering best practice fertiliser management workshops to urban, small landholder and rural demographics.
An additional 20 businesses will also be recruited for the Bay Friendly Business program, aimed at reducing nutrients and pollutants leaving industrial areas.
