Remember, there will be other shoots in March (4th-6th) depending on the area, and you can participate in these too. Contact the local Landcare officer for Wagin, Woodanilling, Dumbleyung, and Kent to find out more details of those shoots.

And your ongoing pest management is important throughout the year!
