From staff reports

The Dishman Hills Conservancy will have a Weed Work and Lunch event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Conservancy experts will discuss how to remove noxious weeds and promote native plant ecosystems.

Registration is recommended. Participants will meet at the Redeemer Lutheran Church at 3606 S. Old Schafer Rd., Spokane Valley, and carpool.

On Sunday, the conservancy is hosting a Forest Fire Ecology Walk with Jack Nisbet from 5 to 8 p.m. Nisbet will describe the conditions in the Iller Creek area after the devastating fire over 25 years ago. He will discuss whether the forest is recovering and how native plants are doing compared to invasive species.

The event is free, but there are limited spots, so registration is recommended.

Participants will meet at the Iller Creek Trailhead at 9100 E. Holman Rd.

To register for both events, visit dishmanhills.org.
