On-ground land management action
The Derwent Catchment Project
2021–22 annual report
Our vision is a thriving community and economy supported by a healthy natural environment.
Through our work in the Derwent Valley, Central Highlands and Brighton we aim to:
- empower and inspire the community to be involved in active management to improve land and waterway condition in the catchment
- facilitate community and industry innovation and investment in best-practice resource management to reverse land and waterway degradation.
Our strategic plan sets the direction and strategic actions for the Derwent Catchment Project until 2023. It is a working document which is evolving as our organisation grows in capacity.
What we do
Strategic, cross-tenure weed management programs
Working to remove willows and weeds from rivers to provide access for fishing and recreation, and revegetating the banks with natives to improve river heath
Planting locally grown native species for shelter and shade and to improve biodiversity
Supporting best-practice farming
Working with farmers to improve productivity and natural capital
We have specialist skills and experience in conservation planning, remnant vegetation and threatened species management
We develop practical and strategic guidance for program activities for best results on the ground
Become a volunteer
Thanks to volunteers just like you, we are closer to achieving our vision of Tasmania becoming a global leader in nature conservation and sustainability.
The Derwent Catchment Project was set up to assist landholders to restore and maintain natural and agricultural landscapes across this challenging environment, to ensure a prosperous and sustainable future for the Derwent Catchment.
We take action.
Our partners include a wide range of industry, NGOs, government and community organisations collaborating to make a difference on the ground.
