Spring has sprung and it’s time for action! Join community volunteers from the Cockburn Community Wildlife Corridor on Saturday the 29th September for a morning weeding event.
The bushcare team have been working hard hand weeding throughout parts of the corridor. The volunteers who have been using manual weed control methods have been seeing positive results where this technique has been applied. Manual hand weeding is a viable option where target weed populations are small and impacts on native plants germinating may be high if using herbicide.
There are several weeds popping up all along the Corridor at the moment following some good winter and early spring rains including the above Dischisma arenarium and bulbous weeds such as Pink Gladiolus (Gladiolus caryophyllaceus). Broad weed control targeting many of these weeds will commence soon.
