Closed areas: Aerial shooting program
Some areas of this park are closed due to routine aerial shooting operations targeting deer and pigs, from Monday 25 June to Wednesday 27 June 2018. This time frame is weather dependent, and may be extended if necessary.
The areas to be targeted are:
- the eastern side of Jagungal, with the western boundary being the Greymare and Doubtful Gap fire trails, and including the Snowy Plain area
- the western side of Lake Eucumbene, from Denison down to Eucumbene Cove
- the Pilot Wilderness Area, between the Big Boggy and The Pilot.
This operation is part of a 3-year program to reduce the impacts of deer and pigs on the Montane Bogs and Fens Threatened Ecological Community and other high conservation value native vegetation in these areas. Other feral animals such as dogs, foxes and goats will also be shot during this program. Aerial shooting is not used to control horses in NSW national parks and therefore horses will not be targeted as part of this program.
