Weeds of Southern Queensland
Welcome to the Weed Society of Queensland
The members of the Weed Society of Queensland (WSQ) share a common interest in weeds and pest animals and their management. The Society was formed in 1975 with the aim of advancing the understanding and practice of weed management. In recent years the society expanded its scope to include pest animals and the WSQ - Pest Animal Branch was born. The WSQ is one of the seven societies of the Council of Australasian Weed Science Societies (CAWS).
Reducing the impact of weeds and pest animals, and preventing further spread across the vast and varied land types and waterways of Queensland requires on-ground action.
