Dogwood Creek Boosted By native Habitat Restoration
Recently, OzFish delivered a significant boost to Dogwood Creek, returning native vegetation to its banks to enhance the waterway for native fish and encouraging local fishers to become waterway stewards. The project is part of the Australian Government’s Murray-Darling Healthy Rivers Program, which aims to improve the health and condition of rivers and wetlands across the Murray-Darling Basin. Our volunteers, alongside members of the Miles District Fishing and Recreation Club, planted more than 1,500 native trees and shrubs. Supported by local contractors they also installed one kilometre of protective fencing to ensure the restored vegetation is not damaged by livestock.
