The Logan Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Bridgerland Audubon Society, Utah Native Plant Society and Logan City invite the public to join us for the 2nd Annual Weed Day.   The public is invited to participate in the community wide event.  The ongoing efforts offer fun, exercise, a chance to meet new people as well as give back to the local community.

The goal of this project is to help reduce and eradicate invasive weeds threatening the native plant community of the local area. Invasive weed species threaten the ecological integrity and biological diversity of plant communities within the project area and have caused adverse impacts to recreation, wildlife and other important social and resource values.

Target weeds include, dyers woad, burdock, houndstongue, Scotch thistle and other invasive weeds.

Control methods will include hand pulling, digging and possible bagging.

We will meet at the Canyon Entrance Park pavilion 9:00 a.m. for a safety meeting and weed orientation before heading out to the assigned areas.  Parking is available.

Volunteers should wear protective clothing, including gloves, long pants, long sleeved shirts, sturdy footwear and lots of drinking water.  Some tools will be provided but it is recommended to bring your own weeding tools and shovels.

Please join the Logan Ranger District, Bridgerland Audubon Society and the Utah Native Plant Society as we work to protect our land by preventing the spread of noxious weeds in Cache County.
