This summer, Parks Victoria (PV) will continue its volunteer program which is working on eradicating the invasive Hawkweed from the Bogong High Plains.
Hawkweeds are a highly invasive pest plant species which could cause major environmental damage in alpine and sub-alpine areas of Australia if not eradicated early.
PV have now added some volunteering dates for this summer. There will be four one day sessions available on the following dates;
Friday 7th January, 2022
Friday 14th January, 2022
Friday 21st January, 2022
Friday 28th January, 2022

Volunteers that are directly engaged in a Parks Victoria program and/or activity that is delivered by Parks Victoria staff are required to have mandatory vaccinations unless holding an exemption. Once you have registered for an event we will send you some further correspondence which will allow you to upload your information to a secure database.
In line with Parks Victoria Protocols volunteers will be required to have a Working with Children Check.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
