Help wanted for Pretty Beach bushcare

The Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association is calling on volunteers to help the Pretty Beach Bushcare group with is work along the waterfront dog track between Pretty Beach and Hardys Bay.

The group meet every Monday at the dog track 2 - 4 pm.

"It is a small friendly group and newcomers are very welcome," said Bushcare member Ms Toni Trent.

"No experience is necessary and you will learn about native plants and how to identify and eradicate weeds.

"Any time you can give will help to rescue the native vegetation that supports the local wild life.

"We are currently targeting bidens pilosa, commonly known as Farmers Friend.

"This weed is detested by every Bushcare volunteer and home gardener.

"There is nothing attractive about this weed.

"It is native to the Americas and is an erect densely hairy woody plant with branching habit to about 1m high.

"It has a small yellow flower and the seeds are black, about one centimetre long, with two or three barbed awns at the tip.

"These black burrs adhere to clothing, shoes, pet fur and skin.

"It is also a prolific seeder and will rapidly spread, dominating areas and squeezing out the native plants," Ms Trent said.
