Erosion control and tree planting at the lower Majura dam

We will continue with the work to control erosion in the vicinity of the lower Majura dam that began in 2007. The work includes loosening the soil, placing coir erosion matting on top of it, anchoring the matting with pegs and spreading seeds of native grasses and forbs. We will plant local eucalypts uphill of the dam.
Project Dragonfly started in October 2005. The project’s aim is to rehabilitate the degraded dams and to create a wetland habitat for wildlife. The ground in the vicinity of the lower dam has been compacted leading to bare soil and erosion. See Dragonfly on this website for more information.
