Congratulations team, in particular Chris and the council contractors. There is no Ardisia in this special little swale, photographed in yesterday’s morning light at BA 46. Still there’s plenty of asparagus in seed waiting to invade from the embankment that needs our attention on Saturday.
It’s easy to get disheartened when you see all the asparagus further along the track, but little wins do make our work worthwhile. Look at what happens to healthy wetlands when Ardisia is left to its own devices.
The photo on the left is the north-west corner of the Marcus Section of Noosa National Park, where Ardisia has completely overtaken the diverse native vegetation. Fortunately most of the paperbark wetland is in better shape, as the photo below shows.
