The Yarra Riverkeeper Association are launching three toolkits that the Yarra Riverkeeper are launching to help equip the community to practice environmental stewardship and connect with the iconic landscape and biodiversity found in and around the Yarra River.
On 25 June we launched our first toolkit, the Weeding Toolkit, which you can access here: This Toolkit will help broaden recognition of common weeds and will act as a guide on how to safely and effectively remove weeds. You can access the toolkit here.
Why a weeding toolkit? Degrading landscapes, dominated by weeds are becoming more and more common in and around Melbourne. Weeds compete with the native species of the area, causing imbalance in ecosystems that can have negative consequences for native fauna such as habitat destruction or causing illness if toxic. You can learn more by watching the webinar here. Answers to the questions are now available here: http://yarrariver.org.au/weeding-toolkit-qa-2/
