What council is doing

Council is working in collaboration with the state government and other local governments, community groups and land holders to protect against invasive plants.

A range of programs are being delivered to:

  • prevent the further spread and establishment of high priority invasive plants
  • strategically control certain invasive plants to prevent spread into agricultural and natural areas
  • monitor high risk areas for new invasive plant incursions
  • raise awareness of the need to protect the natural environment and agriculture from invasive plants
  • provide education and support to the local community on the control of invasive plants
  • adopt a unified, targeted approach by working in conjunction with other stakeholders (such as local and state governments, community groups and residents).
