The current focus of
the group is driving a partnership approach with various agencies and
private landholders to manage blackberry.



The Mitta to Murray Blackberry Action Group has achieved a real difference in the local area. 8,000 hectares of blackberry has been treated by 170 local land owners with the group’s support since it was formed in 2012.

Work continued this year to investigate effective ways to tackle blackberry, including using biocontrol agents. The group also provided gate signage for participating land owners to highlight their individual effort and promote the wider community blackberry control focus across the region.

The work of the Mitta to Murray Blackberry Action Group was recognised with the Community Group Award in the 2017 North East Natural Resource Management Awards. The group’s president, Jim de Hennin, received the Leadership Award.
