Join Conservation Fellow, Susan Ballinger, to locate and take a series of photographs that allow CDLT to monitor post-fire recovery by native grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs. Assist with re-taking photos at 7 permanent photo points within the 2014 wildfire footprint on both Saddle Rock City Park and Jacobson Preserve.

Help monitor two populations of Wenatchee Mountains Checker-mallow (Sidalcea oregana var. calva), a native plant with a very limited natural range. In 2014, CDLT received funding from the USFW to establish new populations of this plant by planting of nursery-grown seedlings at Mountain Home. Annually, CDLT monitors the plants.  

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.
