This 2011 / 2012 CCMA Corangamite Landcare Grant project aims to inspect properties in the vicinity of Serrated Tussock infestations and supply landholders with identification and control advice. It also aims to identify how much of a need there is for serrated tussock on ground control works.
The project area lies is within the Western Volcanic Plains flagship and contains remnant areas of critically endangered Plains Grasslands / Plains Grassy Woodland Mosaic. Areas of significance include high quality remnant vegetation along the Cressy Shelford Road and native grasslands on private property within the target area identified for inspection. Several threatened species are also recorded in the area including the critically endangered Spiny Rice Flower (Pimelia spinescens).
