The MacLaughlin rises above Nimmitabel and eventually winds its way to the lower parts of the Snowy River. Classed as a “Blue Ribbon Stream” where trout breed, the river traverses some of the most picturesque and productive farmland on the Monaro.
MacLaughlin River Landcare is our most active and enthusiastic group, with regular meetings and currently two significant funding projects. One of these focuses on the control of serrated tussock, a Weed of National Significance that locals are working hard to eradicate. The second project is focused on rehabilitation of the McLaughlin River which has been a staged project of willow and blackberry control as well as the establishment of “stepping stones” of native vegetation to create a wildlife corridor down the river.
Office Bearers on the MacLaughlin River Landcare Group are:
President: Richard Taylor
Secretary: Henry Bridgewater
Treasurer: Jim Haylock
