What better way to celebrate National Trails Day and the warm weather than hiking? 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, 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 Trail head. 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! #NationalTrailsDay
