As part of the ‘Breathing Life Back into the Yarrowee’ project, the Leigh Catchment Network invite you to take part in this voluntary survey. This ongoing project has recently been awarded funds from Victoria’s Coalition Government to undertake further restoration works on Ballarat’s Yarrowee River. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the communities attitude, expectations and involvement with the Yarrowee River, to assist with future management decisions and monitor the success fo the project.
The following questionnaire will only require approximately five minutes to complete. Copies of the survey will be provided to the City of Ballarat, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority and Ballarat Environment Network. Please answer all questions as honestly as possible.
The survey can be completed by visiting the Leigh Catchment Group website: www.leighcatchmentgroup.org. You will find it under the 'Home' tab. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey on the Yarrowee River corridor.
