Horse Lake Reserve

Join us at Horse Lake Reserve for common invasive and native grass identification, followed by hand-pulling invasive weeds around our restoration grass seedlings. There's lots to learn, and our native basin wildrye, Idaho fescue and bluebunch wheatgrass need your help to survive!

Want to improve the success of our native grass restoration? Want to fit in an upper body workout before your hike or bike ride? Stop by for as long as you want to help CDLT staff hoe weeds in the restoration area near the lower barn at Horse Lake Reserve. 

To preserve native plant habitat and be a good neighbor, CDLT staff are spraying weeds at Horse Lake Reserve and on Balsamroot Trail this spring. All herbicides are applied with a blue dye. Click on the blue link for the product label.

Weed spraying is subject to change due to weather and other variables.
