Pests and Weeds in the Albury Wodonga Area

People have made huge changes to the Australian landscape, many of which have decreased biodiversity. Aside from clearing the native vegetation, we also imported plants we thought were ‘better’ – only later to find that they do so well that they take over vast areas of land…

Our region is no exception, with many imported plants and animals now threatening our environment. There is work to be done…

The guides and links below will help you to help keep our local ecosystems healthy, from identifying pest plants and animals to options for treatment and making sure they don’t spread further.

Volunteer

Parklands Albury Wodonga undergoes projects to remove environmental weeds in the area on a large scale. However these projects require a lot of hands to make any progress.
