About the Weed Warrior Stewardship Project
The City of Greeley has designated Natural Areas that have weeds such as curly dock and thistles that harm nearby native plants and need to be managed for the health of the ecosystem. Greeley Natural Areas & Trails is collaborating with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado to train volunteers to help manage these plants.
About the Volunteer Experience
Interested volunteers must attend training in which you will learn about the noxious weeds we're targeting - their impact, how to identify them, how to manage them, and the process of volunteering to remove them. This will allow you to go out independently to identify and dig up or pull curly dock and thistle to support the health of the natural areas. Tina Booton, Weld County Weed Division Supervisor, will conduct the weed training via an online Zoom meeting, along with Beth Ray, VOC's Weld Volunteer & Partnership Coordinator, who will train on the volunteer logistic portion of this project. The Zoom meeting details will be sent out a day in advance to those who pre-register.
About the Overall Impact
Eradication of invasive and troublesome noxious weeds is a priority in Weld County and throughout many parts of Colorado. By taking part in this important work, you can help preserve Greeley's Natural Areas and Colorado ecosystems for generations to come.”
The training is Friday, June 26, from 9-10:30 a.m.
