Noxious weeds are springing up all over the county, thanks to the wet weather we've experienced this year. The eighth annual "Let's Pull Together" community weed pulling event is next Saturday, June 11th. Dan Sherwin, Deschutes County Vegetation Manager says they have some designated areas in Redmond, Sisters, Bend, Sunriver, and La Pine where people can gather to identify and pull the noxious weeds: "The problem with noxious weeds is, ya know, they will take over native grass areas and they're really not good for livestock or wildlife. They don't want to eat 'em. Some of these plants are very poisonous and can cause problems to humans and livestock and animals. So, there's a lot of reasons why we need to get rid of the weeds here in Central Oregon." Sherwin says they get up to 1200 volunteers showing up for the weed pull event. He adds that soon after they pull the weeds, they will sow seeds of plant species that can help deter noxious weeds.  If you would like to get involved, go to: www.letspulltogether.com.
