Upper Mitchell Catchment Rehabilitation Plan
Technical Report on Rehabilitation Needs
The North Queensland Afforestation Association Inc.(NQAA) Revegetation Planning Project aims to identify specific areas where protection of the natural vegetation and catchment rehabilitation works would be beneficial to catchment management particularly in existing planning frameworks for the river and stream catchments of Queensland's Wet Tropics Region, including the Upper Mitchell River Catchment. The planning project prioritises these and suggests a community strategy for implementing projects based on these priorities. Revegetation, pest control, grazing management and soft engineering works on rivers and lagoons are activities which can assist in improving catchment health through repair and enhanced management of land and water resources, ensuring multiple benefits to ecosystem viability, biodiversity, water quality, wildlife corridors, landscape amenity and recreation capacity.
