BECOME A WILDERNESS WEED WARRIOR
Join us for a weedy Wednesday in Mt Rose Wilderness! We will meet at the Hunter Creek trailhead at 8 am and hike to a location along Hunter Creek Trail as a group to remove the invasive Musk Thistle. Removing this invasive thistle is important because it crowds out native grasses and flowers and decreases biodiversity. Weed pulls are a fun way to spend time outdoors and help restore Nevada's wild places!
