It’s that time of year again; those pretty plants and flowers you see may actually be noxious weeds. In a recent project with the County and the City, 260 local kids got out and pulled the weeds near Miller's Landing. Vegetation Manager for Deschutes County, Dan Sherwin says the purpose of the project was two-fold: "You know, these programs are great to get rid of the weeds but one of the awesome things about it is, it's education and awareness. And some of those fourth and fifth graders they know what knapweed is now ‘cuz they've been pullin’ it for three hours, and it's a good education for the parents the teachers. It's good for science classes to know that we have these environmental issues out there that we need to be concerned about.” If you'd like to learn more about what noxious weeds look like and why they're an issue. You can do so by going to www.deschutes.org/weeds, or just call 541-322-7135.
