Native vs Weed look-a-like workshop and rainforest bushwalk

Join Landcare Illawarra project officer Richard Scarborough for a workshop to help you further develop skills around identifying the differences between native plants and weed look-a-likes.

We will be visiting the old Corrimal colliery which is now privately owned and being rehabilitated by the landholder with support from Landcare Illawarra.

The site has a range of weed invasion issues. Vegetation is in a range of conditions due to past usage and frequent deer invasion.
The workshop will include:

9.30am – Cup of tea and registration
10am-12.30pm – Walk and talk covering topics on

  • Weed ID
  • Native plant ID
  • Deer management issues in bush regeneration

12.30-1.15pm – Lunch
1.15-2.15pm – Rainforest bushwalk

Participants will be given free weed ID booklets and a species list to learn and check against and note any weed look-a-likes on the day.

Lunch will be provided

When: Saturday November 3
Time: 9.30am – 2.15pm
