Parkcarers of Southern Murrumbidgee (POSM)

POSM are a small, informal, enthusiastic parkcare group who take care of an area on the Murrumbidgee River, from Point Hut Crossing to Pine Island, including part of Barney's Hill. It's a beautiful area, frequently used by runners, walkers and dog walkers, and people swimming and kayaking.

POSM formed in 1992 and we have members who have been with the group for over 10 years.

Gudgenby Bush Regeneration Group

SACTCG Waterwatch group profile

The ‘bushies’ as they have become affectionately known as started life in the winter of 1998. The then 15 strong crew were approached by a Parks and Conservation ranger (namely our own Steve Welch) to assist in revegetation after the removal of the last stands of commercially grown pine plantations (known as the Boboyan Pine Plantations) in the Namadgi National Park.

Living with Lovegrass

Lovegrass mix Redgrass African lovegrass mix.

‘Living with Lovegrass’ a forum designed around learning from each other on how to manage African Lovegrass was held at the Namadgi Visitor Centre on Saturday 22nd May. Around sixty people attended the forum and it was interesting to hear the range of views expressed about lovegrass. Some graziers expressed the view that lovegrass is here, cattle can use it, so perhaps we are better off devoting resources to Serrated Tussock. Others thought that lovegrass is potentially our worst environmental and agricultural weed species. Whatever the view there is no denying African lovegrass is a highly persistent, summer growing, perennial grass weed that is invading rural properties, urban parklands and roadsides and nature reserves across our region.
