Community Rivercare Officer
My name is Matthew Barbour I am SERCUL’s new Community Rivercare Officer.
Having worked in the natural restoration industry since 2009, I have a well-developed knowledge of the natural restoration industry and a keen passion for learning local Flora and Fauna species. I have assisted in numerous projects along the swan coastal plain including erosion control, weed mapping and control and implementing of revegetation projects.
After joining SERCUL in 2019 as an environmental field technician I went on to become a team supervisor in 2021; giving me the knowledge and skills to recently become the new Community Rivercare Officer.
As the Community Rivercare Officer I will be working with community groups to develop and implement on ground restoration projects in waterways through a community grants process, I will also be responsible for the development and implementation of an iconic project with the Swan Canning catchment. My position works in collaboration with the staff from the Rivers and Estuaries Branch of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
I look forward to developing new relationships with people around the Swan Canning catchment to establish long term improvement for the health of the river and the community. You can look forward to a visit from me if you are involved with implementing a new Community Rivercare grant.Back to Staff
