Nominations for the 2005 Auckland weedbusters awards are currently open. Nominations must be received by 31 August 2005 and notification of the award ceremony will come soon after.
Entry is open to all who volunteer their time toward weed management and education.
Volunteers may be dedicated individuals, part of a community group, or an industry/organisation. Volunteers may receive financial support from grants to cover operational costs, but time spent implementing initiatives must be donated.
The awards recognise weed management initiatives across all land types: private, public, rural, urban and coastal. They also recognise weed awareness and education efforts. There is no age restriction on nominees.
