Weeds of Murrindindi app

Monday 19 November, 2012

The devastating fires of Black Saturday 2009 burnt 430,000ha of land in Victoria, most centred along the Great Divide and including locations such as Mt Disappointment, Mt Robertson, Toolangi, Black Range, Marysville and Blue Range State Forests, together with Kinglake National Park and Cathedral State Park.

As part of an intensive post-fire weed control program conducted on public land, this app was developed to assist scientists, land managers and the general public to identify and locate weeds within the fire affected area.

The Weeds of Murrindindi app lists weeds representing the highest overall environmental risk, as identified by Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and Parks Victoria staff.

It is available as a free download from the iTunes store now.
