The Living in the Black Snake Creek catchment booklet was launched today at the Black Snake Creek Festival. 

This unique booklet has been developed through a partnership between SEQ Catchments, West Moreton Landcare and Ipswich City Council. 

It celebrates the Black Snake Creek catchment and provides a wealth of information and practical tips to support local residents in their efforts to keep the catchment as healthy and beautiful as it can be. 
 
Black Snake Creek forms a physical link between the communities of Tallegalla, Marburg and Glamorgan Vale; it snakes through the landscape flowing into the Brisbane River above the Mt Crosby weir and eventually into Moreton Bay. 

As a result, working together to improve water quality and reduce the area’s salinity issues are important not just for those people who live in the catchment but also right across South East Queensland. 

The Living in the Black Snake Creek catchment booklet highlights that no matter the size of resident’s property, there are things they can do to improve both it and the landscape. 

Tips for getting to know the landscape and how to interpret the textured and diverse countryside are offered, and information to assist with managing it within its capability are provided. 

For those residents interested in creating a bird-friendly backyard and creating space for our unique wildlife there are planting recommendations and easy to follow suggestions. 
 
Increasing residents’ link between their property and where it fits into the catchment can help them better manage their land in a way that enhances the health of the Black Snake Creek catchment. It is the cumulative impacts of all our individual, everyday decisions and actions which can make Black Snake Creek the healthiest and most beautiful that it can be.
