Help Revegetate the Richmond River

Conservation Volunteers Australia

Help Revegetate the Richmond River! Intensive agriculture along the Richmond River has resulted in issues facing the river's water quality, soil nutrient deficiency & erosion. To combat that we will provide riparian rehab via bush regen, weed control & re-establishing native vegetation. Would suit students studying ENV00224 and SCI00111.

Working on this project you will make a difference in Key Impact Area: Environment; Sustainable Development Goal: Sustainable Cities & Communities (SDG 11).
