  11. 11. Overall • Landholder is very happy with how the revegetation has protected the bank • Site needs a helping hand • Some Cats Claw, Chinese Elm, balloon vine • Dense pasture grass as groundcover • Very little natural regeneration • Slumps are continuing upstream of the project site • Biodiversity Fund project to commence here this financial year
