Weed Walk with The Weed Warriors, August 5

For the fifth year in  a row, 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.

This year we’ll visit infestations near the Alder Creek Adventure Center, and in walking distance of the Clubhouse. Carpools can be arranged for the drive to the Clubhouse.

Here are all the details:

Tahoe Donner Weed Walk with The Weed Warriors

  • Date: Saturday, August 5
  • Time: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm (Light refreshments provided.)
  • Meeting Place: Alder Creek Adventure Center (on the rear patio), 15275 Alder Creek Road
  • RSVP Required: To RSVP email tdtrails@gmail.com.

Nota Bene: Participants must be 10 years or older and able to walk short distances over rough, dirt terrain.

Tahoe Donner is an unfortunate host to some of the region’s most noxious invasive weeds, including musk thistle, bull thistle, spotted knapweed, and perennial pepperweed. There is no better way to learn about these invasive weeds than to join us on a weed walk.

If you’ve been on one of our walks before, we encourage you to attend this year’s walk as well. Repetition is a virtue when learning to identify invasive weeds, and we always add new weeds to our itinerary.
