25 Jun Attention Weed Warriors!
Come one and all to learn about noxious and invasive plants, and pull some weeds with your friends. Locations, dates, and times can be found here. Please sign up in the Better Impact system to receive event details about a week prior to the event. If you cannot make a scheduled event, do not despair! Everyone can be a Weed Warrior in their backyard, on their favorite trail, by making appropriate choices at the plant nursery while landscaping, and more! Here are some additional ideas and resources for Weed Warrior-ing in everyday life.
As many of may know, puncturevine or goathead season is upon us. Plants are small due to the cooler/wetter weather, but still germinating all over the foothills, in rights-of-way, and alleys everywhere. Now is the best time to remove puncturevine as the plants have an annual lifecycle, and will have no chance of reproducing if removed now. Remove goatheads and win prizes at Boise Goathead Fest! I am attaching some photos I took of early stage goatheads last week in Military Reserve.
