NEW BEGINNINGS FOR THE LIVING MOORABOOL FLAGSHIP E-NEWSLETTER
Get ready for all the updates you need on one of the most important waterways in the state.
WHAT IS THE 'LIVING MOORABOOL FLAGSHIP’?
The Living Moorabool Flagship is a series of projects that all aim to improve the health of the Moorabool River downstream of the Lal Lal Reservoir, and the West Branch of Sutherland Creek.
There are a few different ways we are working to help improve the Moorabool River:
The project is about people, their connection to the river and how they maybe able to contribute to improving the waterway health of the river. This could be through citizen science programs, improved knowledge and understanding or a better understanding of the cultural significance of the river.
The project is also about physical works that will improve waterway health. This is through planning and delivery of water allocated for environmental outcomes (environmental water) and rehabilitating targeted areas of land next to the river (riparian land) through enhancing the vegetation.
The Flagship project is a great example of traditional owners, community, Landcare, local government, water authorities and the Corangamite CMA working together to improve the health of the river.

We can’t wait to share it all with you!
