STEILACOOM – We had an excellent speaker at the Parks and Trails Task Force meeting last Thursday who provided great education about two noxious weeds that are making an unwelcome appearance in Steilacoom.
Renee Mitchell from the Pierce Conservation District discussed Bohemian knotweed and Old Man’s Beard, and how best to eradicate them. It isn’t easy, but it can be done.
Look for an educational outreach to the community, and more opportunities for weed warriors in April and May with community work parties addressing ivy and other invasive, non-native plants.
Thanks you for all that you do in support of our parks and trails.
