The water quality problems that we face in the Geographe Catchment are not unique and learning from others is an important part of the Revitalising Geographe Waterways program.
GeoCatch is proud to host “Looking over the fence” with three fascinating presenters from Queensland and New Zealand sharing their experience in dealing with water quality management issues.
Whether you’re a farmer, a waterways manager, or a community member interested in the health of your local waterways, this event is for you!
WHEN: Wednesday 16 August, 3.00pm-4.30pm
