This Summer's Hawkweed Program

02-September-2013

A very informative package on this summer’s Hawkweed program is linked below:

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/resources/parkmanagement/20130675HawkweedVolunteer.pdf

We, collectively, have done so well, and the program through Jo Caldwell’s hard work has obtained around $300,000 funding for a further 2 yrs from the Dept of Primary Industry.  This is a real coup, as they believe that we can really beat this weed.  Money is tight in the O’Farrell Govt, so don’t underestimate how much this means, or how much work and scientific rigor by Jo went into getting it.  We need to keep the pressure on and keep OHW from flowering and spreading by rizomes.

Hopefully there will be continued interest this summer. Please (re)join a program which contributes to park management (what a change from a shooter’s or h/riding perspective).
