Mt. Rose Noxious Weed Monitoring & Treatment
Removal of invasive, noxious weeds in the Mount Rose Wilderness Area and within the Hunter Creek Watershed. Two listed weeds on the State List, musk thistle and perennial pepperweed, will be targeted. Approximately 50 acres of noxious weed areas will be treated through at least five volunteer weed pulls.
Removal of noxious weeds helps to retain and improve watershed health by allowing native plant communities to thrive without competition, thus restoring ecological conditions to more natural conditions and reducing potential erosion into the river system.
