Falls Creek Hawkweed Eradication Program - Parks Victoria

About Us

Volunteer recruitment is now open for the 2014/2015 season Falls Creek Volunteer Hawkweed Eradication Survey Program.

Hawkweeds are a highly invasive pest plant species which can cause major environmental damage in alpine & sub-alpine areas of Australia if not eradicated early. Participating in the Falls Creek Volunteer surveys is a great way to help protect the Victorian Alps from this dangerous weed, as well as a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the magnificent alpine environment during the green summer months.

Volunteers will be required to survey the Alpine National Park walking 7 hours per day over 5 days through tough terrain. Accommodation, breakfast and snacks are provided.

Please view our website which has the dates for each survey session:


Please post this on any social media, forum, newsletter, website, blog or notice board that may attract interested volunteers.
