Reliance Creek National Park is under threat from invasive weed species. Pioneer Catchment Landcare have been working on a a site at Reliance Creek in a project supported by Reef Catchments and the Australian Governments National Landcare Programme. Volunteers have spent over five mornings weeding the area and have applied some mulch to further suppress weed growth.

A guided tour of the Palm Vine Forest provides opportunity for community to learn about this unique habitat which is home to a number of threatened species. The walking tour will include a briefing on the history of the site and PCL’s involvement to-date, with identification of important plant and weed species.
