Join us in this project funded by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges to protect natural habitat by removing invasive Boneseed, a woody-weed that can quickly take over native vegetation if not carefully managed. You will enjoy the native flora and fauna of the Onkaparinga Hills while learning some plant identification skills and weed control methods, including hand-pulling and cut & swab, depending on the size of the plant.
Boneseed is listed as a 'Weed of National Significance' and is often regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia because of its invasiveness, potential for spread, and its economic and environmental impacts. Join this project and help us tackle this aggressive invader!
PLEASE NOTE: It is also possible to meet on-site if that is easier for you, but please contact the office so we can confirm the exact meeting location and time.
