Weeds and feral animals do not follow fence boundaries. To stop them spreading, community members must work together. This workshop invites Gemfields landholders and community members to learn how to identify, treat and stop pests for more attractive and productive land.

Guest speakers:

Get to know your local council ranger! Suzie will discuss local weeds, common pests and how they spread.

Hannah Kaluzynski – FBA’s Project Officer (Environment)
