Giant Parramatta Grass
Information Session
Wandandian Progress Association Hall

Thursday July 7th
between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm

Shoalhaven Landcare invites you to an information session on Giant Parramatta Grass (GPG)

At this session, you can learn about how giant Parramatta grass grows, how other landowners are tackling this weed, and what has been successful.

Landowners have found that GPG is a difficult grass to control.
Many landowners are unclear about how and when to control it and what is the correct strategy for their situation.
