We'll start the day in the shearing shed with an enlightening talk and demonstration from Erin Healy from Mulloon Institute. In the afternoon, we'll head out to the project site, which is a gully erosion project. We'll observe how the remediation works done 10 years ago have worked, identify areas that might need repair, and then get hands-on by using the concepts we've learned to further repair the gully. You'll go home with practical skills on how to repair similar sites on your property.

Learn about:

  • Fundamentals of water in healthy landscape function

  • Reading and interpreting rural landscapes

  • Skills in assessing and monitoring the health of creeks and gullies

  • Exploring landscape rehydration interventions

What we will do:

  • Learn the underlying theory and principles that underpin landscape function and landscape rehydration efforts

  • See first-hand gully restoration works completed by Craig Sponholtz in 2014 and Cam Wilson in 2016

  • Discuss best practice methods for installing natural infrastructure for landscape rehydration

  • Participate in a hands-on repair and building workshop of in-stream structures
