Workshop invite_MAFFRA Gippsland will be hosting an Opuntioid Cacti management workshop on 29th May 2018 at the DEDJTR office, Maffra (1 Stratford Rd, Maffra). Matt Sheehan from ‘Wild Matters’ who has extensive knowledge and experience across all facets of NRM, including invasive species, will be presenting. The event includes a morning theoretical component, followed by a field component in the afternoon visiting two contrasting cacti infestations in the Avon River catchment.
A significant number of Opuntioid cacti are not only listed as WoNS weeds, but are establishing themselves as new and emerging threats across the Region. Furthermore, some are listed as Regionally Prohibited Weeds across both the East Gippsland and West Gippsland CMA areas. Registration closes 16th May.
For more details and to book your spot, please see the attached flier. Lunch/morning tea will be provided. Be sure to make note of any dietary preferences during the booking process. Lunch will most likely be in the field.
