Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber, 

2020 has had a difficult start and we want to acknowledge the profound impacts of fire on communities, eco-systems, native flora and fauna and water quality. If you want a deeper understanding on how bushfire impacts drinking water quality we encourage you to look at Water Research Australia factsheet in our resources below.

We have a full calendar of training and events in the next few months but before you dive in, we would like to invite you to take 10mins to complete the Clearwater Annual Stakeholder Survey and go in the draw to win one of three $100 Biome EcoStore Vouchers.

Upcoming Clearwater events: Lots of new events listed. Don't miss out - secure your place today!
