Territory and Municipal Services want you to know they’re making progress in their war against English broom in Namadgi National Park.
Over the past 20 years Namadgi National Park has worked in partnership with the Canberra Bushwalking Club to combat one of the region’s most invasive weeds, English broom.
“English broom seedlings can remain viable in the soil for up to 20 years. It is very important that the annual control program removes as many of the shrubs as possible, otherwise another 20 years is added to the control effort.
“The Club’s members volunteer their own time to come and help out and it has made such a difference. We are now winning the battle against English broom with fewer plants showing up every year.
