SOWN Enoggera Catchment Planning
Last year SOWN looked back over 25 years of our history and activities in caring for the Enoggera Catchment. This year we are looking ahead to develop plans and identify actions for the future.

SOWN has commenced the preparation of an Enoggera Catchment Plan which will look at threats and opportunities for the catchment over the next 10 years. The plan will identify policies and priority actions for SOWN.

Over the next few months, we will be collecting and mapping new information about the catchment and consulting our members, partner organisations and the general community about what should be in the plan. Look out for more information and workshops and how to get involved.
