This August Friends of Tahoe Donner Trails will partner with the Truckee River Watershed Council’s Weed Warriors to conduct an educational weed walk here in Tahoe Donner. We’ll visit multiple sites, carpooling from place to place, and walking out short distances to see a variety of infestations. The walk will conclude with a lunch provided by the Weed Warriors.
Although we are just beginning to understand the invasive weed situation here in this community, it has already become clear that Tahoe Donner is host to some of the region’s most noxious invasive weeds, including musk thistle, Scotch thistle, spotted knapweed, and poison hemlock.
Invasive weed spotting is a rewarding activity for all ages. You can do it every day in your neighborhood and on the trails, and it’s a great way to protect the integrity of our local natural environment. What’s more, because it’s almost like a natural scavenger hunt, it’s also quite fun. If you catch the weed spotting bug, you might even find it a little addictive.
So please join us on this walk, and try your hand at invasive weed spotting.
Here are all the details:
