This field day will utilise the collective wisdom of the Kyeamba Valley Landcare Group in conjunction with techniques discussed with Cam Wilson. It is hoped all participants in the project will attend and receive:
  • Hands on experience on how to deal with erosion control
  • Shaping and protecting a sizeable active headcut using brush and logs
  • Vegetation strategies using pole cuttings to halt active erosion and encourage infill of an existing gully
  • Using small rocks and timber to “Slow the Flow” in a small wash headwall
  • Guidelines as to where their funding can be used (ie. Hire of equipment, purchase of rocks/road base, gabion baskets, fencing, geo-textile fabric, fuel for machinery, trees & plants, gypsum & soil additives)
  • Morning tea and lunch!
