Winning the War against Weeds

Weeds Banner

Winning the War against Weeds will give students, whanau and communities the tools to find and identify weeds, with access to weed and biocontrol experts in New Zealand.

Discovering what weeds are where is essential for their effective management, and community-driven observations are increasingly important to uncover new infestations and species.

Schools from four regions are being visited in 2016 – Auckland, Gisborne, Kapiti Coast and Westland.
