Whychus Creek at Pine Meadow Ranch Weed Pull

June 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Pine Meadow Ranch and Coalition for the Deschutes to pull knapweed and other invasive weeds along Whychus Creek as it flows through the ranch.

Where: Pine Meadow Ranch, Sisters

For more information and to register, send an email to Inge@CoalitionfortheDeschutes.org

You’ll start each of the weed pulls with an overview of logistics and safety protocols and talk about the what and why of pulling invasive plants. Participants will be required to sign a release waiver. Covid-19 protocols will be observed.

Why pull invasive weeds:

  • Noxious weeds invade a variety of habitats, including wildlands such as the National Forest and Deschutes River corridor.
  • They displace and compete with native vegetation, thus reducing wildlife forage, erosion control, and overall watershed health.
  • The Bend/Ft. Rock District of the Deschutes National Forest has documented approximately 2,300 acres of infestations. Some of these infestations are in our favorite places to recreate.
  • We need your help with controlling noxious weeds so we can continue to enjoy these special places!
