Stewardship

Come on down to Lower Sleepy Hollow, our not-yet-open-to-the-public preserve along the Wenatchee River. We will be laying down cardboard around the restoration plantings in the trailhead parking lot, to suppress weeds. If you have a razor blade, large cardboard sections, or a mallet, that can help speed up the process.

Cashmere Canyons trailhead needs your help! We will be hand pulling 6ft tall cereal rye, cheatgrass, and bulbous bluegrass, and cutting back sweet clover to help uncover the native plants hiding beneath them. Most work will be between the road and the parking area, and on the hillside just above the parking area.

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!

Are you looking for a hands-on way to positively impact our lands in just two hours? Do you like to get outside in the company of other like-minded folks? Consider signing up to join the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust for our Weed Warrior knapweed pulls this spring.

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 link below for the product label.

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