Sumner Coastcare Project wins Weedbusters Award
Sumner Coastcare extends a big thanks to Environment Canterbury for being recognised in this year’s Weedbusters Awards. The project was winner of the 2014 Weedbusters Best Project on Public Land award. This recognises the combined efforts of the many community volunteers who have helped transform Sumner beach, which not long ago was nearly all weeds!
Weedbusters is a weeds awareness and education programme that aims to protect New Zealand’s environment from the increasing weed problem. Pest animals and plants (weeds) are the greatest threat to New Zealand’s biodiversity. People play a large part in spreading environmental weeds, often without knowing it, and Weedbusters aims to educate people and raise awareness to turn this problem around.
