Plant invaders!

Take part in this week's challenge - it shouldn't be hard to find a weed. Environmental weeds have a serious impact on Australia's biodiversity but iNaturalist can be a useful weapon against them, helping us recognise and record them, and alerting land managers to their presence. @steve818 is an ACT weeds manager who has set up Weed Swap - Early Invaders which offers an incentive for people to record new and emerging weed species in the ACT region, like this Pink Pampas Grass. Look out for similar projects in your area.
