The Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Four County Cooperative Weed Management Area, with support from the Western IPM Center are sponsoring a FREE homeowner workshop to teach you the tips and tricks you need to make these weeds history. Join us on November 14, 2012 at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center for an evening of weed free learning!
The old saying, “one year seeding, means seven years weeding” is not far from the truth, but this workshop will teach you about a strategy known as Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to combat your worst urban invasives. The class will focus on control methods including cultural, mechanical, chemical, and biological control methods to target the least favorite plants invading your urban homestead.
This event will feature Dominic Maze, Invasive Species Coordinator from the City of Portland, and Samuel Leininger, WeedWise Program Manager for Clackamas SWCD. They will discuss how to identify, eradicate and prevent your common garden weeds. Fall is the perfect time to plan your strategy for the next growing season.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Come early and enjoy some of the historical décor of the interpretive center theater, doors will be open at 6 p.m.
Easy access is available from 1-205 to the Interpretive Center from exit #10 for Hwy 213. Head to south bound Washington Street. The address is 1726 Washington Street, Oregon City.
