Fighting Houndstongue - June 23 - 24

Houndstongue Invasive Weed Houndstongue Invasive Weed

Help Protect Valley View Hot Springs

Thursday and Friday
June 23 & 24, 8:15am to 12:30pm

Do you love the wildlife of Valley View Hot Springs?

Please help prevent this special place from being taken over by houndstongue.

We are continuing our fight to prevent houndstongue, an invasive and toxic weed, from taking over here. This plant does not provide food for wildlife and will displace native vegetation. By pulling houndstongue in the early summer we prevent it from spreading. And we are making headway against it!

Volunteers will pull and bag this aggressive weed for two half-day sessions and enjoy the satisfaction of helping protect a place we all care about. While we're at it, we will also be digging out any Bull Thistle we encounter. Bring gloves!

If you want to help...
