Alice Springs Landcare will be hosting a Buffel Grass control field day in Spencer Valley on Sunday 29th April.
Buffel control activities will commence at 7:30am, and will involve revisiting a previously treated sites to knock down buffel that was sprayed over the summer thus reducing the fire threat.A good turnup will allow for removal of weed grasses in untreated areas and give an opportunity for follow up control of plants missed over the summer. Suitable covered foot ware and gloves are recommended. Mattocks and brushcutters will be the favoured method of removal so any equipment you can bring w.ll help. Landcare will also have gloves and tools available on the day.
I hope we will see you on Sunday…
Suni and Sue, on behalf of the Alice Springs Landcare Committee.
