Weed ID and Advice Workshop

Thursday 28th September 2023

(Past Event)

The PHBG welcomes back weed experts Greg Keighery and Andrew Mitchell as hosts at the workshop. Attendees are encouraged to bring along samples of plants for identification and discussion with some previous workshops having over 150 samples brought in! The workshop is suitable for community members, land managers, local government officers and those that work in natural resource management.

From the experienced to the inexperienced, all attendees will find this dynamic workshop worthwhile. All attendees will receive a copy of the perfect companion to weed ID and control in the form of the Southern Weeds and their Control booklet.

Correct identification of weeds is the first step in effective control and this take home resource describes both physical and chemical control options. The event is also an opportunity to learn about the six priority declared weeds in the Peel Harvey Region from the Peel Harvey Biosecurity Group, and what programs are underway to control these on private property in conjunction with landholders.

You may be surprised to hear how much equipment is available for loan at no cost to support landholders with their control of declared weeds.

The event will run from 10am to 4pm.

Bookings are essential and there is no cost to attend.

Registrations are now open at www.PHBG.org, and for further information please email field@phbg.org or call 0409 079 156.
