The Tarrangower Cactus Control Group (TCCG) now has 3 new videos on their website: Cactus Warriors: Who We Are; Cactus: Tackling the Problem and Cactus Warriors: the Wheel Cactus. The videos feature Ian Grenda, President of the TCCG, and run for between 6 and 10 minutes.
TCCG was set up 7 years ago when 3 local Landcare Groups and Parks Victoria joined together to tackle the spread of Wheel Cactus across an estimated 10,000 hectares of land in the Maldon, Baringhup, Nuggetty and Sandy Creek districts, including the Maldon Historic Reserve. In the first video Ian explains that through their ongoing work the group has probably controlled half of the local infestation of this weed.
The website also has updates about regular field days and TCCG events and serves as a repository of information about Wheel Cactus, methods of controlling it and the history of the group.
