Are you a researcher with interests in Armidale's creeklands - if so, we would like to hear from you (see form below)!
The University of New England has, over many years, employed those with expertise in understanding fresh water systems such as the late Prof. John Burton, Foundation Professor of Natural Resources, who carried out research relevant to the potential for flooding along Dumaresq Creek with a 3D functional model created of the catchment. Currently, the University employs other relevant experts in healthy soils, remediating contaminated soils, managing vegetation, wildlife and birds, waterways and river ecosystems, the latter leading to a recent award for Building Knowledge in Waterway Management.
In addition, as demonstrated by the many papers presented to the 1999 symposium on Dumaresq Creek, many other bodies, such as the former Department of Land and Water Conservation, have been involved in research in the region's waterways.
We are keen to hear from any researchers who would like to contact our association, Visions for Armidale Creeklands, to let us know how we might be able to learn from you and/or support your applications for research projects which might be of relevance to our Mission.
