grass roots community organisation that aims to improve natural condition of the derwent catchment

About Us

The Derwent Catchment Project is a grass roots community run organisation that aims to increase and improve the natural condition of the Derwent Catchment. The programs we deliver cover agricultural best practice; coordinated weed management; fire and flood recovery; river restoration; revegetation; conservation and strategic planning.

Our mission is:

  • To address issues of land degradation both natural and agricultural by implementing best practice land management.
  • To support community and industry to innovate and improve on practice by attracting investment and sponsorship for improvements in land condition in the Derwent Catchment.
  • To empower and inspire the community to be involved in active management of the Catchment.
