YES! African Lovegrass IS STILL ON THE LIST

To effectively combat the African Lovegrass threat a diligent, integrated, coordinated and sustained effort over many years is required if we are to seize any opportunity to reduce the impact of African Lovegrass on the Monaro region’s unique natural environment and productive agricultural farmland. You can participate by helping us develop an effective meaningful management strategy for African Lovegrass.

Under the Biosecurity Act 2015 and the South East Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan, Snowy Monaro Regional Council has determined a list of local Priority weeds, these are detailed in the Snowy Monaro Region’s Local Weed Management Plan along with the legal control requirements for each weed species.

Council is currently revising the Local Management Plan for African Lovegrass under this suite of documents and invites your comment on the DRAFT Plan. Please visit the “Your say” portal on the Snowy Monaro Regional Council website at https://yoursaysnowymonaro.com.au and have your say before 21 June 2019.

Council will be hosting African Lovegrass Management Plan workshops over the next 6 weeks at various locations in the region, to participate in a workshop near you please register by emailing council@snowymonaro.nsw.gov.au and state the location of the workshop you wish to attend. Specific details will then be emailed to you.
