This was the question that underpinned my trip to Europe to review the network of River Restoration Centres and to examine the feasibility of establishing one in Australia. My trip revealed that people value access to good quality information, advice and training.
I believe that in Australia we consistently let down our river managers (landholders, CMA staff, local government) as we constantly change the organisational arrangements and programs to support natural resource management (NRM). Along with my team of supporters we have now established the Australian River Restoration Centre to become a hub for information, connection and celebration. Read more about my findings in my report.
