Another Week and Another Skill for Rangers

Posted in: 
Aboriginal NRM

The ongoing wet weather may have posed less-than-ideal conditions for land management but it’s been perfect for honing new skills.

The Noongar Boodjar Ranger team has used the opportunity to further their land management skills by attending a four-day Weed Control and Plant Propagation course at Muresk Institute. As part of the Green Jobs skill set, the course covers ways to control weeds while minimising environmental damage while learning how to carry out a range of propagation tasks. This included techniques in tree and shrub planting in an array of environmental settings.

Building on their seed collection and recent chemical use training, this course adds another feather to the Rangers’ cap for natural resource management projects. It’s also a complementary skill to the seed collection activities that the Noongar Boodjar Rangers undertake.

The Noongar Boodjar Rangers are a skilled workforce specialising in Wheatbelt natural resource management. Their ongoing activities include seed collection, site preparation and planting. They are available for a wide range of projects. Contact us to find out more and see if they can assist with your project.
