Land for Wildlife Members Devise Ingenious Use for Buffel Grass

— by Chris Watson

The Buffel Bridge

Land for Wildlife members on the far side of Roe Creek have devised a brilliant way of putting removed Buffel Grass to good use – build a bridge!

As Roe Creek has been flowing quite well in recent months, the sand has softened and is proving to be something of a barrier to 2WD visits to their property. After some long sessions of dedicated Buffel Grass removal it was decided that the weed might have another, more practical use. By laying the grass across the river and packing it down with a few trips back and forth in the 4WD it has rendered the creek navigable by most vehicles without the need to engage 4WD.

Top work folks!
