This workshop is supported by Healthy Waterways and Catchments through funding

from the Australian Governments National Landcare Programme and by the City of
Gold Coasts Naturally GC Program.
A new era for the management of South East Queenslands land and waterways has
begun, with the official formation of Healthy Waterways and Catchments. This new
organisation combines leading not-for-profit organisations Healthy Waterways and SEQ
Catchments, whose members voted in the change on 28 June 2016. Healthy Waterways and SEQ Catchments will continue to operate under their existing brands while
we work through the transition. Find out more.
