Provolt Volunteer Day – Starthistle Pull

July 9, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


The highly invasive STARTHISTLE is ready for eradication!  
Now is the perfect time to hit this weed hard at Provolt before large plants develop and disperse on the order of 100,000 seeds each. It is tall and robust but has not yet flowered…and the ground should be softened up a little by this lovely rain. It is easily pulled without tools and makes a huge impact!  We need your help to yank these buggers out in discrete areas around the site where pulling is the best option right now.
The area between the beginning of the south river walk trail and the river access area need the most attention (see red and blue markers on the map). Volunteers and BLM have been aggressively mowing the inner grass field area before the weed goes to flower/seed.
Our incredible Provolt Volunteer Team leader, Liz, will be out at the main site this Saturday (July 9th) from 9:30 – 11:30 if anyone would care to come help.
If you can not do it at this time feel free to enjoy a dose of volunteerism at your leisure!  If you need any guidance, please let us know and we’ll swing over and meet you or answer your questions by phone or email.
Bring your good work gloves and the usual water, appropriate field attire, etc.  No need to RSVP… there is plenty to do, just come on by and bring a friend !

If you enjoy Provolt and want to help in any way, please contact Liz Shen at [email protected] or through The Partnership.
