Outings & Events


Weed Control
- various

Many dates from late April to July. Controlling over 20 species of noxious weeds is one of our toughest stewardship duties. Timing of weed control treatments depends on stage of plant growth and favorable weather conditions so we keep a flexible schedule. Many projects involve using backpack sprayers and a few rely on mowing with string-trimmers and hand-pulling.
