- Farmers now have a better idea of the quality of water in their own backyards, as part of a reef water quality project being delivered in the Tully and Johnstone basins. The Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project collects data at the paddock scale and compares different land management practices and their effect on water quality. Details HERE.
- NQ Dry Tropics recently organised an erosion control workshop at Springfield Station in Mingela hosted by Daryl Hill, an expert in designing and building erosion control banks. If you missed it, check out this VIDEO from the day.
