Introduction

Introduction

  • Newcastle Weed Warriors are volunteers working with the City of Newcastle to reduce the negative impact of invasive and noxious weeds in Newcastle’s parks, trails, and open spaces, and thus improving the aesthetic and recreational quality of our public places.

  • Newcastle Weed Warrior projects provide volunteers the opportunity to learn about invasive and noxious weed plants, which are environmental menaces and wreak havoc to our environment and native species plants.

  • Newcastle Weed Warrior volunteers become part of the solution in solving the invasive weed problem.

Intro. Continued

  • Weed Warrior volunteers are “mighty warriors” that battle against invasive noxious weeds in our community. Battle plans include a strategy for removal of the weeds and are often followed by a restoration plan that stabilizes the environment and returns it to a native habitat.

  • The Weed Warrior program fosters an increased awareness of and participation in local weed issues with hands on experiences in public areas in our community.

  • Today’s youth will be tomorrow’s natural resource managers and environmental stewards.

  • A steward is someone who takes care of another person’s affairs or assets. Environmental stewards take care of the environment, like public parks, trails, and natural landscapes that belong to our community.
