Thanks very much to the all the ‘Cactus Warrior’ volunteers who support our “War on Wheel Cactus”. We really appreciate all the hours of hard work you contribute to our campaign. Together we have killed many thousands of Wheel Cactus plants over the past 11 years, thus preventing the growth of millions more!

However, we can never have too many helpers to control the spread of this invasive weed. If you haven’t already, then please come along and join us. Enjoy the stunning, local landscapes and a rewarding morning outdoors at our community field days, and at the same time help save our beautiful, local environment.

We hold regular Community Field Days on the last Sunday of the month, thanks to support and funding from Parks Victoria, Mt. Alexander Shire Council and North Central Catchment Authority. These are held at various locations around the Maldon area, beginning at 10:30am and finishing with an enjoyable BBQ lunch and friendly chat. We demonstrate how to dig and inject the cactus plants and provide all the equipment. All you need is some sturdy boots and a hat.

Everyone is welcome to join our fun!
