Community involvement in off-reserve and on-reserve management of environmental weeds
This report reviews existing work in community weed management, examining hours, money spent, weed control methods used, regions covered and geographic locations. It also identifies the advantages and limitations of using community groups for environmental weed management. It is interesting to note that the most successful community groups to date are those that receive appropriate support from the local agency with which they are working. It is critical for government agencies to provide experienced personnel to train and support groups that are supplying their time to control environmental weeds, an often tedious job.
