This week the Theiss International and National Riverprize winners were announced with the Sunshine Coast Rivers Initiative winning the domestic prize, and the Charles River Watershed, Boston (USA) winning the international prize. We are thrilled with these awards as both groups of people and their wonderful rivers are worthy winners.
We would also like to acknowledge the efforts of the runners up, Project Catalyst in Qld which has been doing great work with sugar cane growers to clean up their land and water management practices, and to the Mattole River, California (USA) and Melbourne Water for their work on the Yarra River which led them to be runners up for the International Prize. Well done to all. For more on the winners follow this link.
We hope to be working more with these groups in the future to encourage them to share their techniques, approaches and philosophies with others committed to river restoration. As one of the judges for the domestic Riverprize I feel this aspect of being a Riverprize winner is incredibly important, so stay in touch with the ARRC to hear more about our knowledge sharing ideas around this topic.
