Friends of Freycinet
We assist Park and Wildlife with a range of management tasks in Freycinet National Park, Douglas Apsley N.P and Reserves
We run multi (usually 6-8) day events such as 2 trips each year to Schouten Island where we have gorse on the run, we have sprayed a large patch of vinca and that is on its last legs there, as well as dealing with minor weeds.
We clear all the beaches from Falmouth down to Friendly's and Coles Bay of sea spurge, we deal with other weeds such as sweet Pittosporum, Psoralea, Spanish heath, Boneseed and Caper spurge within the Freycinet N.P, the Douglas Apsley N.P and all the reserves. In addition, we do a lot of infrastructure maintenance, painting, oiling boardwalks, repairing, rubbish clean ups etc with week long events such as the Monster May-hem (in May), Spring into September, Schouten (shhhh, it's paradise)! and the sea spurge purge. In the last calendar year we contributed 1181 hours, a good effort for a group that has to travel to Freycinet at their own expense from the Hobart, Launceston and N.W Coast areas.
