    Building on ongoing salinity management work in the Dinninup Brook, a sub-catchment of the Blackwood River, this project aims to address salinity issues on prime agricultural land, protect habitat of priority fauna species and raise awareness about land management impacts on the environment, including regulatory frameworks.

    This project will deliver 12.4km fencing to completely exclude stock from 111ha key tributaries and high value remnant vegetation. Additionally this project will feature a workshop run in partnership with the Department of Agriculture and Food to look at the regulations and procedures relating to on-property surface drainage.
