The Friends of Daangean work tirelessly throughout the year assisting Parks Victoria with weed eradication throughout the reserve. This is such an important role in helping to give the indigenous ecology a helping hand.
Natural regeneration is the preferred method to restore native vegetation in some parts of the reserve, in other parts, more intensive revegetation is needed with key Indigenous species being planted.
Monitoring is very important- the aim is to assess the success of regeneration after restoration in an area, including the rate of natural regeneration and changes in vegetation communities.
Below are a few of the weed species that are being removed from the reserve.
As seen in the above map, 1005 hectares is a lot of reserve and we would love your help to care for Daangean (Devilbend). Involving the community to help conserve, protect, restore and to make a place of learning is what we are about. If you would like to help volunteer, click on the button below and contact us today.
