Want to improve the success of our native grass restoration? Want to fit in an upper body workout before your hike or bike ride? Become a Weed Warrior - Invasive Grass Assassin! We will meet on Wednesdays, weekly, until about mid-June. (This one is on Saturday!)
Stop by for as long as you want to help CDLT staff hoe weeds in the restoration area near the concrete slab where the barn used to be at Horse Lake Reserve.
We will mainly be removing bulbous bluegrass (we need to get it before it spreads!), which is a shallow, fibrous-rooted, perennial weed that we were not able to control during the weed spray last fall. Our native basin wildrye, Idaho fescue and bluebunch wheatgrass need your help to survive! Please join us, even if it's just for 15 min. We need all the help we can get.
You do not need to be able to recognize the different grass species - we will flag native plantings as we go and work in sections, so you know what to hoe out and what to leave. We can also teach you some ID characteristics of each of the grasses growing in this area - both the natives and non-native.
To register for this event please email Tiffany Theden, Stewardship Assistant: [email protected]. 310-254-0067
Thank you in advance for being as tenacious in your support of restoration as the weeds are in growing.
Hoes, gloves, and snacks will be provided.
*All work parties are weather and conditions dependent. Canceled work parties will be rescheduled if possible.
