Terrick Terrick National Park Conservation
Come join Conservation Volunteers as we help conserve the picturesque Terrick Terrick National Park in Northern Victoria.
Mt Terrick Terrick is a low granite outcrop that rises above the surrounding flat riverine plains at Mitiamo. This hill, and two others, and the surrounding flat land are covered in bushland and flat grasslands. Together, the granite outcrops, surrounding open forest, and indigenous grassland plains form the core of the Terrick Terrick National Park. The park protects one of the last areas of undisturbed vegetation in Northern Victoria.
In recent years, a number of outlying paddocks of native grassland were added to the National Park. These grasslands, and others inside the main body of the Park, are home to several species of plant which are rare and threatened in the region. They are also home to the largest known colony of the endangered Plains-wanderer. The Plains-wanderer is a small bird that resembles the Button Quail. The Plains-wanderer demands native grasses, daisies and grassland tall enough to conceal it from predators, making the Terrick Terrick grasslands a highly important area.
Volunteers will assist in helping to protect the grasslands from species such as Wheel Cactus, Box Thorn and Bathurst Burr. Also over the course of the project, volunteers will assit with biomass management for the protection of the Plains- Wanderer by maintaining and pulling down fences and fixing stock yards. Other tasks will include helping to maintain visitor facilities such as walking track clearing, road maintenance and picnic area maintenance.
