  • Wilderness Weed Warriors 2017 #7

    Michael S. Thompson Trail Head - Hunter Creek Trail

    With summer in full swing now, why not spend the morning out hiking our beautiful backyard wilderness? Join us as we work on removing 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.

    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!

  • Mt. Rose Wilderness Invasive Weed Monitoring #3 1 RSVP

    Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 07:00 AM
    Mt. Rose Wilderness - Michael S. Thompson Trailhead

    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.
