The WeedScan Project - Sept 2021

Attached is a brochure on WeedScan, a project of the CSIRO, the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions and the NSW Department of Primary Industries. 

Given that as many as 80% of invasive weeds in Australia are escapees from gardens (since first settlement), the Garden Clubs of Australia (with whom Friends are affiliated) is encouraging all affiliate members to participate.

We would encourage as many of you to become involved.  Collectively, there is hope that more than 1 million photographs of weeds across Australia will be assembled, which will make identification, mapping and eradication so much easier.
