TRAILS — Volunteers interested in helping manage noxious weeds on Spokane’s High Drive Bluff are invited to participate in a work party this evening, (Aug 17).
 
“We will cut rush skeletonweed plants away from sections of the trail where they are impeding trail use,” said group facilitator Diana Roberts of the WSU Spokane County Extension.

Next Wednesday (Aug. 24), volunteers will focus on controlling knapweed. 

“Be sure to bring work gloves, sturdy garden clippers and water to drink. Long pants, long sleeved shirts, and hiking boots are the recommended attire.”
 
Meet: 6:30 p.m. at the trailhead south of Bernard St. and High Drive.

“At 8 p.m. we will adjourn to the Rocket Market for a beverage and to socialize,” Roberts said.
