Rangers Put Theory Into Practice

Posted in: 
Aboriginal NRM

Our Noongar Boodjar Rangers have been putting their theory into practice this week. Following their chemical use training at Muresk Institute in July, a team of five Rangers have been busy undertaking weed control on a tricky site.

Located outside York, the Rangers have been contracted to work on 48 hectares of land that is earmarked for a revegetation project. They are using the skills that they learned in the Agricultural Chemical Skill Set training to target key locations around the picturesque farm.

The challenging site is very hilly with a large number of hard-to-reach rocky outcrops. The Noongar Boodjar Rangers are using a combination of a large spray tank combined with backpack sprayers to reach those more difficult locations.

Although the terrain is proving to be a test it was a great opportunity to put the Rangers’ recent training into action. It consolidates their abilities in all aspects of natural resource management.

The Noongar Boodjar Rangers are a skilled workforce specialising in Wheatbelt natural resource management. Their ongoing activities include seed collection, site preparation (such as this one) and planting. They are available for a wide range of projects. Contact us to find out more and see if they can help out.
