Types of Volunteer Work Available

Knapweed is an invasive plant that can take over native landscapes by releasing toxins from its roots and producing 12,000 or more seeds from a single plant. By pulling knapweed before it goes to seed, we can keep this weed corralled. Oh, and don't forget your cowboy hat!
