Projects & Funding

Everyone's Environment Grant - "Those Worrisome Weeds"

BJFG have been awarded $40,000 funding for the above project to run from 1/10/13 to 1/10/15.  This project is to help stabilize the creek systems of the Jinghi Jandowae Cooranga Downfall catchments and throughout the BJFG catchment area.  Work will include fencing of riparian areas to exclude stock from further destablizing the creek banks and leading to erosion.  Weed control will also be undertaken.  Local landholders will donate their time and machinery to erect fencing and eradicate weeds.  One of the sections within this project will include the removal of 12 Athel Pines on the grounds of the Jimbour State School.  Athel Pine is declared a type 3 weed.
