Avon Waterways

WHAT
Waterways management including fencing, revegetation, creation of walk trails and encouraging recreational use.

WHY
• Riparian management is identified in the Regional Strategy as a key driver for river function
• Our partners, the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, have committed to work with the Wheatbelt community on Avon Waterways
• Our partners, CARE (Caring for the Avon River Environment) are highly motivated and need supporting
• Walk Trails are identified in the Noongar Boodja strategy

WHY IT IS GREAT
It leverages off the valuable planning work that Wheatbelt NRM and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation did during NHT1. We have the plans, we know what to do next.

The government has absolved itself from local management of our waterways as a cost cutting exercise. It is vital that our community groups are supported to fill that void.

Our waterways need a good clean up and decent walk trails for people, but it annoys me that no one will take responsiblity for the trail bikes that destroy the birds peace. We have beautiful Blue wrens, Robin red breasts and a lot of others, not to mention, the lizards, echidnas, kangaroos, etc.

Rejuvenating our natural water courses is a must and we must do it now!
Plant trees, lots and lots of trees. It will bring back all our native living things that need water to thrive. Rains will come to where there are trees. It hardly ever rains in the desert.

Another must is getting rid of foreign weeds/plants to this country, they are taking over and killing out our natural grasses that feed our native animals.

As part of the Avon Valley Environmental Society this project really appeals to me as it has similar aims to ours.
