On Saturday I joined NICA (Noosa Integrated Catchment Association) for their 20th Anniversary Catchment Excursion No. 8. We began the day near Kin Kin Creek at Wahpunga School Park, a site of tree planting and creek bank stabilisation begun in the early 1990's by Landcare. Twenty five years on the trees create a dense microcosm with welcome shade. The tranquil pools and gentle flow of the creek gives little indication of the flood events that occur in this area. It was interesting to see the mature results of a stabilisation project.
