About

With a great season underway, help us complete our seasonal Noxious Weed program. Spend one last day up in the Mt. Rose Wilderness and help work to remove invasive weeds from the Mt. Rose Wilderness. Using shovels, we can most effectively reduce the population of Musk Thistle. Invasive weeds have many impacts on the native environment. From out-competing for resources to reducing water quality. The work is extremely rewarding and you get to experience some truly amazing country, all in our backyard Wilderness.

Once again, we'll be removing invasive weeds up the Hunter Creek Draining of the Mt. Rose Wilderness. We meet in the mornings at the Michael D. Thompson Trailhead. We start each Weed Pull with a 2-3 mile hike and spend the cool hours of the day digging up Musk Thistle Rosettes. If you haven't experience Mt. Rose Wilderness, this is the perfect introduction. Join us for a great outing into our Public Lands and RSVP today!

In addition to the weed pull we will be a hosting a Pizza Party to thank all of our wonderful Weed Warriors! Anyone who has volunteered on a weed pull this season is invited to join and celebrate our success and hard work.
