NRM North are hosting a series of workshops aimed to assist all landholders in flood prone areas to better understand riverine process when designing and implementing fences, which minimise the risks of flood damage and increase infrastructure longevity, while constructing a fence that will be easy to repair once flood waters recede.

Supported by NRM North, Tamar Action Grants are now available to provide funding for landholders to exclude stock from waterways in the Tamar Estuary and Esk River catchments through on-ground works and installation of infrastructure.
