Join us for a chat with staff from the Department of Environment and Climate Action on Phytophthora. Wednesdays information session will cover:

  • Phytophthora – what is it?
  • Maps - Where is it?
  • What volunteers in SW Vic need to know?
  • Strategies for preventing the spread.
  • Interest in site visit to Mt Clay to view infested area.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to arrive at the Portland Community Garden at 6:45pm for a 7:00 PM start. This information session will run for approximately 15-20 mins and will conclude with an opportunity to register your interest in attending an inspection of an infested phytophthora site later in the month with our guest speakers from DEECA.
