Tasmanian Land Conservancy Interlaken Working Bee

Over the past seven summers, dedicated Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) volunteer teams have contributed over 599 days of work removing invasive weeds from the TLC's beautiful Five Rivers Reserve and Interlaken properties, in Tasmania's Central Highlands. We estimate that they've removed well in excess of 1,000,000 weeds!

This summer they're at it again and need three big teams of volunteers for three successive working bees. This approach will allow the group to efficiently to remove the threat of weeds across 20,000 hectares of beautiful highland landscape. It's also bound to be a lot of fun and a great chance to meet like-minded people.

The first working bee of the year will be held from the Tuesday 15 - Friday 18 January at Interlaken. Volunteers can choose to participate in one or more days, but will be required to commit to the whole day. 

All working bee activities will take place on TLC's beautiful Five Rivers Reserve at Bronte and our New Leaf properties at Interlaken in Tasmania’s Central Highlands. Accommodation will be provided at either 
Brady's Lake or Interlaken.
