Upper Barwon River Community Forum

The community within the Upper Barwon River Catchment have long been concerned about the health of the waterway due to low environmental flows, willows and other weeds, among other issues. This led the Upper Barwon Catchment Network and the Forrest Gerangamete Landcare Group to convene a public forum in October 2022, which was sponsored by Barwon Water and Corangamite Catchment Management Authority.

The forum was an opportunity for community members to learn about the health of the Upper Barwon River and what is being done to improve it. Jen facilitated the forum and produced an independent report afterwards.
