Sunday the 10th of April will see Conservation Volunteers Australia and Mount Rogers Landcare Group join in an attempt to stage a blitz on woody environmental weeds including Cotoneaster, Privet, Pyracantha, Briar rose and the occasional Broom & Hawthorn.
These weeds all produce berries which are eaten and dispersed by birds, spreading them around the area and displacing native vegetation and animal habitats. The aim of the day is to eradicate as many of these invasive plants as possible and significantly reduce the amount of berries being distributed by birds after this extraordinary summer of growth.
Conservation Volunteers Australia invites the community to join in and learn more about the fight to conserve our local bushland.
Conservation Volunteers is a not for profit organization whose mission is “connecting people with our environment.” For more information, or if you would like to join the team, contact Conservation Volunteers in the Canberra Office on 02 6247 7770 or Canberra@conservationvolunteers.com.au
