Narbethong Holly Control Project.
The Friends of Marysville Walks is part of the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network and have been carrying out a very successful project to control Holly in bushland and along waterways in the Narbethong area.
Working with and under the direction of Marilyn and Ray Connor we have controlled many hectares of holly on private and public land along Fisher Creek, Dom Dom Creek and Hermitage Creek by using Recycling for Recovery funds to employ specialist weed control contractors. We have also supervised many volunteer days cutting out and poisoning holly at the The Hermitage, a heritage-listed building in Narbethong set amongst the tall Mountain Ash forest at the summit of the Black's Spur.
Our most recent day was with 10 volunteers from Conservation Volunteers Australia.
