About the Event
It has become clear that invasive weeds are more than just a nuisance and can become a major obstacle to maintaining many forest values, from fire management to wildlife habitat to recreation and traditional uses. A lack of knowledge and inattention to plants other than trees and forage has enabled invasive species to spread and establish themselves beneath the radar. Now we have the formidable challenge of preventing their entrenchment and their degradation of the Sandia Mountain landscape we all enjoy. As we go about our activities in the forest, we can establish a baseline of their current presence by knowledgeably spotting and reporting the presence of the most threatening species. Please join the Sandia Collaborative and Tom Stewart of the Native Plant Soceity of NM to learn how to help safeguard the future of the Sandia Mountains from the spread of invasive weeds.
