locals agree that the noxious weed serrated tussock is the most serious
environmental and agricultural problem we face. Thatís why Jerrawa
Creek Landcare joined the Upper Lachlan Shire Council and Lachlan CMA to
launch the Tussock Tamers Project April 2010.
Can We Make a Difference to the Serrated Tussock Problem?
Jerrawa Creek Landcare and its partners in the Tussock Tamer project are sure we can.
Tussock Tamers is based on three beliefs.
long term management of serrated tussock needs a well thought out plan
that takes into account your particular area and circumstances.
Secondly, we can only make inroads into this problem if everybody works together.
Thirdly, it requires sustained effort by of all of us.
Tamers aims to create community awareness of the problem and gain
commitment by everybody to make their best effort to tackle it. Thatís
why Tussock Tamers is giving people the opportunity to join others in
locally based short courses on natural resource management, weed control
and property planning.
