The Lower Clarence Cane Toad Outlier - coming to a venue near you!
For over 20 years the small pocket of toads in the lower Clarence has been a source of frustration for many. Many people in Yamba and surrounds are resigned to sharing their properties with toads for the rest of their days. With some of the nation’s most significant wetlands only a few hops away there are a lot of reasons to contain this pest population.
Nigel Blake who is employed by North Coast Local Land Services will chat about the ongoing toad busting challenge from his perspective as a government employee and fan of the swamps.
You’ll hear about the stories of those involved in the mission to keep the toads out of the homes, National Parks and high ecological value wetlands of the Clarence Floodplain- see the latest weapons, marvel at the haul of toads collected by volunteers and our local contractor, and take part in a brain storm on how to get more troops on the ground to tackle this menace.
The presentation will be held in the Staffroom at Grafton Public School, Queen Street, Grafton from
5.30 – 7 p.m.
There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
Refreshments will follow.
