Bushfire erosion video series
The bushfires in our region in early 2020 have had many impacts. One of these is soil erosion, which can have a devastating effect on the landscape. To help land managers deal with erosion after fires, Murray and Riverina Local Land Services have collaborated with Soil Conservation Service, North East Catchment Management Authority and Agriculture Victoria to prepare three short, informative videos.
This video explains how bushfires can contribute to erosion, what the drivers of erosion are, and the types of soil erosion.
This video talks about how erosion after a fire can impact your farm and the importance of prioritising small-scale erosion works.
This video outlines some methods for the control of small-scale farm erosion, including the types of materials that can be used.
The following resources may be useful in understanding and managing the impacts of erosion after a bushfire:
