Murrumbidgee River Restoration 2021

Murrumbidgee River Restoration 2021

In a first for Leeton, essential fish habitat in the Murrumbidgee River was installed in 2021 providing vital habitat for native fish. Volunteers from OzFish Leeton Chapter and Murrumbidgee Landcare worked together to raise funds and plan and install eight giant snags and several smaller ones. Local volunteers pulled together to reinstall the woody habitat and reinvigorate the local ecosystem and is made possible by the OzFish-Landcare NSW partnership with funding support from the NSW Recreational Fishing Trusts, BCF and the Leeton Bidgee Classic.
