Riparian Weed Management Workshop

28th April 2014

Liss Weed Control

Landholders within the Maroochy Catchment will have an opportunity to join industry professionals on an ecosystem survey to gain skills in riparian management during a field day being run by Maroochy Waterwatch on the 28th of April.

There are a variety of control methods available for managing riparian zones and this workshop aims to help you identify what’s best for your patch:

– Frill, cut, paint for large trees,

– Foliar spray application

– Release of bio-control agent,

– Hand weeding,

– Monitoring & Revegetation

These techniques provide an effective way to control many of the common weeds that occur along the creeks and rivers, such as Cat’s Claw Creeper, Small and, Large Leaf Privet, Lantana, Paspalum grass and herbaceous weeds and tubers. We aim for participants to leave with a better understanding of when weed control is appropriate, the best time to undertake control, and what can be done to maximise native regeneration at your site.

The workshop will be held at Whalley Creek (off Silverwood Dr, Burnside) on April the 28th between 8:30am and 11:30am with a bus leaving from the Maroochy Waterwatch office at 8am (seats limited). Please wear a hat, covered footwear and long sleeve shirt and pants.

Light refreshments will be provided. RSVP to Hetti Malone on (07) 54 764 777(07) 54 764 777 by 21st of April 2014, bookings are essential as limited spots available!

This workshop is funding by SEQ Catchments through the Queensland Government.
