Weed Warriors


The Weed Warriors will be back this spring-fall to help battle invasive weeds at Land Trust protected lands! Join us to help restore native plant communities in Central Oregon!

Weed Warriors is a volunteer group that meets three times a month to remove invasive weeds like mullein, spotted knapweed, teasel, and Canada thistle from the Land Trust protected lands. Non-native vegetation is a major threat to functioning natural systems Pulling them by hand can help us control these weeds on our protected lands without the use of chemicals.

  • Weed Warriors begin meeting in May and continue through the summer on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday, as well as the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 9 am - 12 pm. Locations vary.

  • July 13th Location: Whychus Canyon Preserve. This is a great opportunity to visit a Land Trust property that is not open to the public!

  • Level of Difficulty: Pulling weeds is hard work! These work parties are rated as moderate and require hiking off-trail on uneven terrain, stooping, kneeling, and working in all weather conditions.

  • What to bring: Gloves, eye protection, sun protection, snacks, water.
