100 years of national parks in Tasmania –
centenary of Mt Field and Freycinet National Parks
larapuna Community Weekend
For the third consecutive year, the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) is running the larapuna Community Weekend in the Bay of Fires region.
PWS, the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania, Birdlife Tasmania, the Tasmanian Walking Company, NRM North, Break O’Day Council, Friends of Eddystone Point and the local community join forces for three days to walk 35 kilometres of coastline, pull thousands of invasive sea spurge plants and collect/classify 100 kilograms of marine debris. The event provides a wonderful opportunity to not only share connections, celebrate the diverse heritage values of the region and tackle two environmental issues together but to also forge new connections to the place and foster positive working relationships with the diverse group of individuals and stakeholders.
Last year, all 100 kilograms of debris was classified by 50 grade five and six school children at St Leonards Primary School. This follow up work not only allowed the data to be uploaded into Tangaroa Blue’s Marine Debris Database but most importantly, for the next generation to be engaged in the conversation about this worldwide issue.

Arum Lily is an invasive weed that takes over waterways, wetlands, coastal heathland and buttongrass moorland, choking native plants and impeding water flows.
Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service supported by Cradle Coast NRM funded by the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme invite you to help us remove these weeds from the conservation area.
