Weed Wars!

Various locations and dates starting in late April

Do you care about wildflowers, wildlife habitat, or just beautiful hiking trails? Help the Land Trust battle invasive weeds! Dates and locations will depend on how the weed season is shaping up, so let us know if you’re interested and we will keep you informed on upcoming work parties. Most weed work will happen in the Wenatchee Foothills, and may involve off-trail travel and hand-pulling or spraying with a backpack sprayer. Contact Neal at or (509) 667-9708 to let him know you’re interested.
