FOAL Volunteers and Park County Weed & Pest Staff on the HMA
Board Members Ron, John, Buzzy, and Marshall along with volunteer, Cheri Kreitzmann met the Park County Weed & Pest (W&P) team near the Whistle Creek Road on January 22nd and/or 23rd to treat salt cedar (Tamarisk) and Russian olive trees on the HMA. The board members and volunteer donned packs and headed out across the snowy prairie along Dry Creek. The W&P crew was professional and hard-working but they didn’t have anything on us!
One might think the balmy weather a benefit for the task, but the combination of snow drifts and mud made navigation difficult. The task was postponed until drier conditions or a hard freeze occur. Tentative dates to resume this effort are February 23rd and 24th and February 26th and 27th. Hopefully FOAL volunteers will be joined by volunteers from Marathon and Big Horn County W&P Districts, along with the Park County W&P and BLM. Marshall will keep us up-dated as those plans develop. Please come and help if you can. It was, as Buzzy put it, not only enjoyable, but “such a worthwhile project!”
