Agriculture Victoria is encouraging young people to become involved in managing invasive species at a free workshop at Melbourne Museum on Monday, May 6.
A new initiative from Agriculture Victoria’s Weeds and Rabbits Project, the workshop is aimed at anyone with responsibilities in land or invasive species management.
This includes interested members of local communities or farming groups, Landcare, universities or TAFEs, government agencies or other non-government or not-for-profit organisations.
The workshop is open to people of any age, whether volunteer or professional, from across Victoria.
Community volunteers can be reimbursed for their out-of-pocket travel expenses to attend.
