Ragwort removal from Central Highlands

Ragwort removal volunteers Kim Clark, John Shoobridge, Justin Hawkins and Morgan McPherson

Last weekend IFS provided on ground support for the removal of ragwort at Lake Elizabeth Bay on the eastern side of the yingina / Great Lake as part of our in kind support for the Central Plateau Weed Management Strategy. Boat transport, accommodation and practical help was provided to the Derwent Catchment Project for their ongoing work in removing this very invasive weed from the Central Plateau.  Thousands of plants and seed heads were removed and destroyed. One mature plant can spread up to 1/4 million seeds.
