About

This year we decided to monitor the invasive weed populations later in the summer. This will help us identify how many are slipping past the blades of our shovels and how this past winter affected populations.

Join us for a day of hiking on and off trail throughout the north portion of Mt. Rose Wilderness. We will hike to known weed locations and assess how they are doing. Hopefully, we won't find any new ones.

This is a great way to get a more in depth knowledge of Noxious Weeds and explore rarely seen areas of Mt. Rose Wilderness.

We plan to start early to beat the summer heat. Trip details are subject to change. If you have further questions, contact us here at the office, 775-324-7667.
