Willow Springs Mullein Removal 2

 

Mullein Removal! 

Come help Friends of Nevada Wilderness remove invasive mullein from Willow Spring in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area on August 10th

Invasive mullein plants, originally from Europe and Asia, pose a significant threat to the native ecosystems of southern Nevada. Their rapid spread and dense growth outcompete native plants, reducing biodiversity and altering habitats. Mullein's deep taproots destabilize soil, increasing erosion and disrupting nutrient cycles. Moreover, its highly flammable leaves contribute to more intense wildfires, particularly in areas where fire is natural.

Controlling mullein is crucial for preserving ecosystem health. Manual removal can help mitigate its impact. By managing mullein populations, we can protect native flora and fauna, maintain biodiversity, and reduce the risk of destructive wildfires. It's a necessary step toward ensuring the long-term resilience of our natural landscapes.

Removing mullein is a rewarding way to help maintain the health of spring ecosystems and work with other like-minded folks. 

RSVP today!
