Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery

The Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Plan 2014-2024 (PDF 2694 KB) sets out the direction for the recovery of Logan's rivers, streams and wetlands with collaboration and community stewardship at its centre.

The Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Plan articulates a recovered river future where:

  • Our community has increased ownership and capacity to participate in the long term stewardship of local rivers and wetlands.
  • The catchments in Logan are productive and sustainably managed and support diverse enterprise and function.
  • The health and resilience of Logan's rivers, creeks and wetland ecosystems has improved.
