“Boots on the Ground” Encourages Environmental Stewardship
This program encourages and facilitates volunteer stewardship of public places. Youth and adult Weed Warrior volunteers have the opportunity to get their gloves dirty and make a difference in their local parks and public places. Stabilized weed infestations are often large and economically unfeasible for cities and communities to control successfully without assistance from non-profit organizations like the Nature Stewards. Projects include invasive weed assessment, removal, and habitat restoration using native species plants and trees that stabilize the environment after the invasive weeds are removed.
