The Capricorn Pest Managemnet Group was formed in 1999 to establish a coordinate approach to weed and pest animal management in the Capricorn region. Major stakeholders are the Local Government authorities, Qld Gov agencies, Landcare, Industy and Primary producer groups.
Emu Park Community Bushcare became involved with the CPMG when they organised the 2009 Qld Week Symposium at Capricorn Resort July 2009. A local tour included the Cocoanut National park, dicussing rehabilitation work there and lunch at Bell Park where the Bringing back the beach scrub work was highlighted.
EPCBG were presented the award at a dinner on November 18, where Cliff Bunn spoke about the group’s work and on-going committment to weed management in the area.
