Weed Advice and ID Workshops


New November Date

Unfortunately the PHBG will be postponing our Weed ID and Advice Workshop that was scheduled for this Thursday.

The SJ CRC where the event was held is staffed by mostly elderley volunteers and with the current climate around meetings of more than 10 people it was decided to postpone the workshop until November.

I will keep all those interested in attending up to date with new workshop details into the future.

PHBG staff are still available to assist landholders with declared pest enquiries, please feel free to email or call the Group with any questions.

The PHBG welcome back weed experts Greg Keighery, recent Order of Australia recipient, and Principal Ecologist Andrew Mitchell to work through local weed issues and samples.

This workshop is informative and interactive suitable for front end staff taking community reports and weed issues, operations teams out in the field, NRM professionals, enthusiastic individuals and landholders.

All attendees receive the perfect companion to weed ID and control the Southern Weeds and their Control booklet and there will even be a light lunch and networking opportunity beforehand.

Please register by email to weed@phbg.org and share amongst your networks.

Workshops can focus on:
