Environmental Project - 2 day Litchfield Weed removal
- Durata: 2 Giorni (circa)
- Luogo: Darwin, NT
- Codice prodotto: VP-LNP2D-01
Each year fire in the NT causes massive damage to private and public lands. Most of this damage is due to the need to keep weed species of grasses under control.
In Litchfield National Park this situation is a regular occurance with around 80% of the park burned each year.
In the 10 years we have been touring in Litchfield we have seen adverse impacts due to fires and feel there is now a strong need for help to be given to the underfunded and understaffed NT Parks Service.
It is our objective to attempt to keep the weed problem under control in very specific areas of the park which through their high use and importance require intensive weed management.
At the same time all work and no play is not a good balance so half work and half play sounds about fair to us.
An outline of the schedule is below.
An early departure from Darwin allows an early start on Day 1 with the objective being to clear weeds.
