On the morning of June 7 Friends of Tahoe Donner Trails will partner with the Truckee River Watershed Council’s Weed Warriors to bring invasive weed control to the annual Truckee Day Neighborhood Cleanup.
We’re looking for Champion Weed Warriors to teach our neighbors basic invasive weed identification and weed removal techniques. We hope you’re willing to lend a hand.
We plan to target no more than two class-c weeds. One will be bull thistle, and the other is not yet determined. Champion Weed Warriors will have a poster and live samples to use as teaching aids. You’ll also be given clear bags to hand out for the uprooted weeds, and plenty of invasive weed booklets and pamphlets to pass out to volunteers. We’ll need folks to arrive sometime before 8:00, and we should have the volunteers ready to roam the streets by 9:30.
It’s not a long commitment, but it is an important one. Truckee Day brings a lot of volunteers to Tahoe Donner, and we’ll need plenty of help preparing them to combat invasive weeds.
If you participated in any of our weed walks or weed pulls last year, please consider sharing your knowledge on Truckee Day. However, no experience with invasive weeds is necessary. If you wish to volunteer, but don’t have any experience with invasive weeds, we can arrange a brief workshop to teach you everything you need to know.
This is a great opportunity to teach our neighbors about the invasive weed problem here in Tahoe Donner. Let’s try to lend a hand, and help the Weed Warriors make this a successful event.
If you would like to volunteer on Truckee Day, please email the trails club at email@example.com.
