Weed Warriors is a volunteer group of Sherman residents that come together in order to stem the continuous spread of invasives on public land. Invasives (e.g., Multi-flora Rose, Japanese Knotwood, Phragmites, Oriental Bittersweet, Winged Euonymus and Japanese Barberry) damage local habitats and wildlife. Weed Warriors does not use herbicides. Instead, it uproots and smothers these non-native invaders.
