Biosecurity education program

Officers provide expert advice, information about council's invasive plant and animal programs and education materials to assist community members.

To educate and engage with the community, council's invasive plant and animal officers attend a range of events each year. This enables council to engage with the community and work in collaboration to protect against invasive plants and animals.

Officers will be available at the following events:
