Keep it in Kin Kin

A Noosa catchment priority erosion remediation program.

Project purpose

Keeping land and waterways productive and healthy is necessary for food production, employment, social wellbeing and environmental preservation. The Keeping it in Kin Kin project aims to support critical soil, water and vegetation systems that underpin our local and regional economy and environment, not just in Kin Kin, but also downstream to Noosa.

The project will harness the latest science and on-ground experience to identify the areas most in need of treatment to protect and improve soil, water and vegetation systems in the Kin Kin catchment.

This project has been developed in collaboration with the Noosa Parks Association’s ‘Bringing Fish Life Back to Noosa’ project. It is also linked to both current and approvedGreen Army andSkilling Queenslanders for Work Employment training programs being managed by Noosa Landcare.
