Our 2017 season of Community Field Days will be launched by Darren Fuzzard, CEO Mount Alexander Shire, on Sunday 30th April.
The Tarrangower Cactus Control Group continues to ‘wage war on Wheel Cactus’. We’re very pleased that Darren Fuzzard, Mt. Alexander Shire’s new CEO, will be cutting the ribbon for the launch of our 2017 season of Community Field Days, on Sunday 30th April at 10:30am.
Thanks to our sponsors and supporters, including the Mount Alexander Shire Council, North Central Catchment Management Authority and Parks Victoria, we hold these field days on the last Sunday of every month from April to October. We warmly welcome anyone who’d like to learn how best to destroy Wheel Cactus plants. This noxious weed is highly invasive and is quickly spreading across our beautiful Central Victorian landscapes.
We also express our gratitude to the volunteers who continue to support our war on Wheel Cactus. However, we can never have too many hands to help us control the spread, so please come along and join us for a rewarding morning outdoors. We’ll demonstrate how to dig and inject the plants and provide all the equipment. All you need is some sturdy boots and clothing.
The location this month is in Watersons Rd., a few kms north of Maldon, just after the turn off to Treloars Rd. To get there, follow Bridgewater Road out of Maldon and turn left at Watersons Road; the route will be well signposted. The morning’s activities begin at 10:30am and end with a delicious BBQ lunch and friendly chat. If you have any queries please contact us via our website at www.cactuswarriors.org
