Why do you want to mess it up and slow it down? A Rivers of Carbon Community Conversation

When it comes to rivers, creeks and wetlands that support wildlife, store carbon, produce clean water and improve agricultural productivity, science suggests that streams should be ‘messy’ and highly variable.  The Rivers of Carbon team are hosting a conversation about this topic with local landowners, river management scientists and wildlife experts on Wednesday 26 October at the Goulburn Club in Goulburn, New South Wales.

Joining us will be Professor Ian Rutherfurd, a geomorphologist who will provide insights into how our rivers function and move throughout our landscapes. Matt Herring is also coming along to talk about wildlife management on farm, and why ‘messy’ is better for boosting biodiversity.  Siwan Lovett, Manager of the Rivers of Carbon Program will talk about the work being done along waterways in the district, and current opportunities for locals to get involved. Local landowners will also be there to provide their practical insights into managing both productivity and environmental outcomes on-farm.

The talks will start at 4.30 pm and finish at 6.30 pm. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion, as well as tea, coffee and cake being available from 4.00pm. Refreshments will also be available at the end of the speaking sessions.
