River corridor fights to save native fish

Published 05 Jun 2017 

In the heart of a river restoration project is Bush Heritage’s Scottsdale Reserve, where more than 4,000 trees and shrubs have been planted, comprising a quarter of the 16,000 plantings of ribbon gums, snow gums, bottle brushes and wattles that have been planted across Scottsdale and neighbouring properties.

This 6km bush corridor restoration, known as the Rivers of Carbon Upper Murrumbidgee River Rehabilitation project, is connecting high quality river habitat between the Bredbo and Colinton gorges, to establish a 40km long corridor – all to help protect several nationally threatened natives, including Macquarie Perch, Trout Cod, Murray Cod, and smaller native fish such as Mountain Galaxias and Australian Smelt.
