Information Day – Learn About Effective Blackberry Control Techniques

The Yea River Catchment Landcare group in association with the Murrindindi Community Hub is hosting members of the Victorian Blackberry Taskforce who will –
• provide some background about the introduction and spread of blackberries in Australia, and
• discuss suggested control measures, what other groups are doing to attack the problem, safe spraying and the use of drones.

YRCL will also have information about the group’s spray trailer available for members to hire.

Access to the Murrindindi, Yea and other local rivers is being progressively choked by this noxious weed. Landcare members and local residents are encouraged to attend to learn effective strategies to help get this pest under control.
