The South East Wetland Carers Network presents

Low/No Chemical Weed Control Workshop

WHEN: Friday 26 August, 8.45am – 1pm
WHERE: Bermagui Library & Community Centre
9 Bunga St, Bermagui

In response to frequent requests for information about reducing or eliminating herbicide usage in and around wetland sites we are offering this half day workshop.

To ensure that our presenters cover topics of relevance to you, please let us know:
What weeds you are most concerned about in your area? and
What landscape types they occur in?

Mia Dalby-Ball (Acacia Environmental Solutions) will provide an overview of techniques to reduce herbicide usage including:

  • Designing weed free habitats
  • Flame weeding (including in wetlands and waterways)
  • Steam treatment
  • Fauna (goats etc)
  • Salts and more…

Your local council weeds officer will provide information about “alert” weeds to watch out for and try to answer questions specific to your area.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

Bookings are essential – please contact Michael Andrews
