Weed Projects Summer 2012

July 27and 28, Friday & Saturday—Mill Creek to Passage Creek.

Help eradicate noxious weeds! From the Paradise Valley, this project will require 2-3 hikers for two days along heavily-used Mill Creek up to Passage Creek. We’ll be documenting and spraying for Dalmatian Toadflax and other invasive weeds along this wilderness access trail. This will be a recurring project. We would like for someone to ‘Adopt-a-Trail’ and consistently re-monitor the effectiveness of the treatments each year.  If you live in the greater Paradise Valley/Livingston area, this is the project for you!

August 18, Saturday--East Rosebud Lake to Elk Lake

ABWF will be teaming up with the East Rosebud Homeowner’s Association and other volunteers to complete a large weed eradication project on one of the most heavily used trails in the entire Wilderness.  We need your help in identifying and destroying various noxious weeds, particularly Canada Thistle, that threaten wilderness quality and the native species that live here.  Join us for this essential aspect of wilderness protection.  We are hoping ultimately to develop a legion of volunteers who are constantly on the lookout for weeds in both the frontcountry and the backcountry, are willing to record new outbreaks of noxious weeds where they find them, and ultimately help us defeat these infestations.  This might be the project for you!
