Cape York NRM is proud to be partnering Terrain NRM as a Gold Sponsor at the 14th Queensland Weed Symposium being held at The Port Douglas Community Hall from 4 - 7 December 2017.

The Symposium theme is “Our place. People, priorities and practice in weed management”. 

Our place – weed management is ultimately about place.  Place forms the where and why of the management targets we set, the places we seek to understand and protect and the relationships which are essential to making it happen. Our place is also a play on words as in ‘knowing our place’, where we fit in to the bigger picture, the lessons we learn on the way and how we communicate amongst the weed management community and beyond.

People - weeds are ultimately about people, the things we do and don’t do, what we can live with and what we can’t.

Priorities – effective weed management is a balancing act which relies more and more on clear thought and decision processes. Understanding what we value is an essential part of this process.

Practice - practice in its most literal means exercising the profession of weed management; but it also plays on the idea that practice makes perfect (learning from our mistakes).
