Coastal Wetlands

Water Sensitive Urban Design or "How to do drains better so we can catch more fish"

Presented by: Brian Stockwell

As the summer storm season approaches, here are questions for you to ponder:

Where does all that water on the Cooloola coast run off to?

What gets carried away with it?

How can we best protect our treasured creeks and the Sandy Straits so that fish can thrive?

Our guest speaker's presentation will address these questions with knowledge about design to protect our natural resources.
