South Cape York Catchments


South Cape York Catchments (SCYC) is a community based Natural Resource Management organisation. In the last 12 months we have undertaken works including aquatic weed control, cultural heritage protection, re vegetation of riparian areas, feral pig exclusion fencing from high value wetlands, water quality monitoring and threatened species surveys.

This work is undertaken in partnership with Traditional Owners, Volunteers, Indigenous Rangers and School Students.

Melsonby & Hope Vale Congress Rangers joint Battle Camp clean up 

The Melsonby Rangers had a busy end to 2014 resurveying their fire plots and participating in a joint clean up of Battle Camp Road with Hope Vale Rangers.  They cleaned 6km of road, and removed 3 ute loads of rubbish!  Joint efforts like these are great for building relationships and swapping knowledge with other groups working in the area.  SCYC hopes to work with many more groups in 2015!

Volunteer Tree Planting event at Rossville a blooming success!

It was a busy Sunday for the 10 keen volunteers who joined SCYC staff to plant 218 trees in Rossville! The BBQ lunch was certainly enjoyed by all after a morning of hard yakka. 
It was a very successful day, and a huge thank you goes out to those who joined us for our last volunteer day for 2014. 
Watch this space to see how you can get involved with your local catchment group next year!  As a community group, SCYC relies on enthusiastic volunteers to help us with tree plantings, beach clean ups and other projects.  If you'd like to become an SCYC Volunteer, click here and fill out the contact form, and we'll let you know when our first 2015 event is!
