Tuggeranong Lake Carers' Logo Competition

The Tuggeranong Lake Carers was formed to do something about the condition and health of Lake Tuggeranong, which over the last few years has been periodically closed to the public for months because of regular outbreaks of blue green aglae. These outbreaks pose a serious health hazard.  To further publicise these issues we are running a Logo Compeition.

Living with Lovegrass

Lovegrass mixRedgrass African lovegrass mix.

‘Living with Lovegrass’ a forum designed around learning from each other on how to manage African Lovegrass was held at the Namadgi Visitor Centre on Saturday 22nd May. Around sixty people attended the forum and it was interesting to hear the range of views expressed about lovegrass. Some graziers expressed the view that lovegrass is here, cattle can use it, so perhaps we are better off devoting resources to Serrated Tussock. Others thought that lovegrass is potentially our worst environmental and agricultural weed species. Whatever the view there is no denying African lovegrass is a highly persistent, summer growing, perennial grass weed that is invading rural properties, urban parklands and roadsides and nature reserves across our region.
