Buffel Busting at Simpsons Gap
Come and lend a hand busting buffel at Simpson’s Gap with the Arid Lands Environment Centre and Parks and Wildlife.
Here we plan to combat the Buffel Grass surrounding some of the Ghost Gum and Cork Wood trees, reclaiming these areas to protect the trees.
Participants can hop on the ALEC bus to get to Simpsons Gap. Please meet at the Arid Lands Environment Centre at 8.30am for a 8.45am departure. Seats on the bus are limited so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or meet us onsite at the ghost gum behind the information and ranger centre.
Buffel Grass has made a significant impact on our environment impacting both flora and fauna. While it would be near impossible to completely remove the plant we are able to aid the current fauna and flora species by removing the Buffel Grass from sensitive areas.
In order to make a significant impact we will need to return to this area and repeat the process on a semi-regular basis over the next few years.
Morning tea is free and is provided by Territory NRM.
Supported by Parks & Wildlife and Arid Edge Environmental Services.
When: 17th of June, 9am-12pm.
Where: Ghost Gum walk at Simpson’s Gap - located at the information centre.
