Orange Hawkweed (Heiracium aurantiacum), discovered in Kosciuszko National Park (KNP) in December 2003, has been treated and controlled for the last 10 years. Systematic surveys to determine the presence/absence of orange hawkweed have been carried out over the last four summer seasons. This has been achieved with limited funding and resources, primarily relying on volunteers to assist in surveying for new infestations and the use of a weed contractor for herbicide applications and some surveys.
