Plant trees to restore the iconic Murrumbidgee River, NSW
The Murrumbidgee River is a beautiful and iconic river in the mountains. You’ll be weeding and planting to restore this beautiful ecosystem. It will be a great experience and we’d love you to join us!
The Upper Murrumbidgee Demonstration Reach (UMDR) is approximately 100 km long and runs from Bredbo in NSW to Casuarina Sands in the ACT. Roughly half its length lies in NSW and half in the ACT. Water in the reach is used for ecological, rural, urban and recreational purposes.
The upper Murrumbidgee River is a high value riverine ecosystem containing the critical aquatic habitats of several nationally listed threatened species (notably Trout cod, Murray cod and Macquarie perch). The UMDR project is all about improving fish habitat and river health in this vitally important waterway.
The next dates for this project are Tuesday the 29th and Wednesday the 30th of August.
What you can expect:
-beautiful river landscapes
-helping conserve an important river ecosystem
We provide transport to and from the project location. The first pick up point is the gravel car park on Angas Street at the bottom of the Majura Oval at 7.40am. There is free parking there. The second is opposite the Canberra YHA on Akuna Street at 8am. We generally make it back to town at 4pm.
All you need to bring with you is food and plenty of water for the day, and appropriate clothing for being out and about in the great outdoors: long pants, long sleeved shirt, a hat, sturdy shoes, and work gloves if you own a pair. All equipment, safety gear and tools are provided by CVA.
