Cactus Warriors on parade at 2016 Maldon Easter Fair

The Tarrangower Cactus Control Group (TCCG) had fun participating in the recent Maldon Easter Fair parade. The ‘Cactus Warriors’ entry celebrated their 10th anniversary and their efforts destroying millions of Wheel Cactus plants over this time. They won a well-deserved First Prize for the ‘Best Community Entry’, and would like to thank the sponsors of the prize and the Maldon Easter Fair Committee.

Now that the fair is over, it’s time for the faithful army of Wheel ‘Cactus Warriors’ to continue their war against this noxious weed. The TCCG and Parks Victoria invite all interested folk to join us at our monthly Community Field Days, which are always held on the last Sunday of the month, from April to November.

This year’s season of field days will be launched on Sunday 24th April and will be officially opened by our special guest Asha Bannon, Mount Alexander Region’s new Landcare Facilitator. The location will be at a property in Waterson’s Road and will be well signposted along Waterson’s Road from the turnoff at Bridgewater Road. The morning’s activities will begin at 10:30 am and end at 12:30 pm with an enjoyable BBQ and friendly chat. If you have any queries, please contact Ian on 0412 015 807.
