Learn all about karamu tomorrow

Karamu near the New Norfolk boat ramp.
IF you live on or near the Derwent River in New Norfolk you may be familiar with the introduced woody weed called karamu. It is fast taking over the riverbank and wetlands in and around the town.

Steven Joyce from NRM South says widespread participation is the only way control this weed and clean up the waterway. To help tackle this weed, a free workshop involving plant identification and the demonstration of effective control methods will be held tomorrow (Sunday) followed by a lunchtime barbecue.

This will be held at Tynwald Park at 10am, near the footbridge to the wetlands. For more information call Steven Joyce on 0499 178 550.
