Weed Blitz at Mulgoa Nature Reserve

Environment & Conservation One off - a few hours Mulgoa NSW

About this opportunity

Mulgoa Nature Reserve is a 213-hectare reserve located in Glenmore Park, providing crucial habitat for several threatened species such as the slender Native Pear (Marsdenia viridifolia), Cumberland Plain Land Snail, Powerful Owl and a variety of microbats. With your help we can support the ongoing weed control works of the Mulgoa Valley Landcare group targeting Cats Claw creeper, Olive, Lantana and Tree of Heaven. No experience is necessary for this event - bring yourself and a can-do attitude! Our friendly Project Officer is there to answer your questions and guide you along the way. This project is made possible with support from Penrith City Council and the NSW Environmental Trust.
