Weed ID and Habitat Workshop - Strahan

21st April 2023 | 

Save the date!

On Saturday the 20th May, Landcare Tasmanian and Tasmanian Land Conservancy are coming together to host an exciting new workshop in Strahan.  This workshop responds to community interest for learning about environmental weeds as well as our Tasmanian native flora and fauna. 

Some of the things we will cover:

  • How to identify local weeds
  • Effective control techniques
  • Land For Wildlife program
  • Identifying native plants
  • Habitat for native animals
  • Wild Tracker app
  • Trail camera monitoring

In the morning we will learn from Environmental weed consultant Sharon Young about how to identify weeds using examples collected from the local area and Sharon will demonstrate the various methods of effective weed control. We will also hear from local groups taking control of weeds in their favourite areas.




 After lunch we're going all native with Ecologists Anna Povey and Glen Bain from Tas Land Conservancy. We will take a walk along the beautiful Hogarth Falls walking track to identify some nearby native plants and discover what makes great habitat for our native fauna. Anna will explain about TLC's Land For Wildlife conservation program and how your property can be a safe haven for some of our native animals. Glen will showcase the new WildTracker app and explain about how you can be involved in this exciting citizen science program.

* Bring your favourite fold-up chair and a raincoat in case it's a bit damp!
