Details

Keeping our waterways free of weeds along with protecting and enhancing vegetation all helps promote a landscape that is healthy, diverse and resilient. The use of herbicides around waterways and other sensitive areas requires extra care and planning in order to achieve a good outcome. Land managers are invited to come along to a field day to gain an understanding of best management practices in riparian zones.

Find out:

  • how to identify different willow species including seeding willows
  • what methods can be used to effectively treat woody weeds along waterways
  • what chemicals can be used along waterways to assist weed control
  • what are best practices for chemical use and record keeping
  • how can we best restore our riparian zones - a revegetation case study

Speakers:

  • Leon Miners - Senior Natural Resource Management Advisor, South East Local Land Services
  • Antia Brademann - UMDR Facilitator
  • Jo Powells - Senior Agricultural Advisor, South East Local Land Services
  • Brett Jones - Snowy Monaro Regional Council
