    Dinninup Catchment is a prime agricultural area and Dinninup Brook a major tributary to the Blackwood River.

    This project aims to assist landholders to manage salinity and waterlogging on their properties by providing funding for fencing and revegetation.

    Five landholders will participate and will fence remnant stands of vegetation or low-lying, salt-affected creeklines to exclude stock and allow natural regeneration, and revegetate where necessary with local provenance seedlings.

    If undertaken at a catchment-wide scale these activities are expected to contribute to significant long-term improvement in the health of the catchment.

    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Blackwood Basin Group
    Project duration: March 2013 - June 2014
    Location: The Dinninup catchment is a sub-catchment of the Blackwoood River catchment; it runs over the Shires of Boyup Brook and Kojonup
