Thanks for weed awareness

“Water, Weeds and Wildflowers” was a great kick-off to Colorado Weed Awareness Week. Continental Divide Land Trust would like to thank everyone who made the event a success, especially our sponsors: the town of Silverthorne, Alpine Bank and the Summit Daily News.

Paul Schreiner and Lisa Taylor of the Summit County Weed Program helped educate more than 150 people about noxious and obnoxious weeds and what to do about them.

Pat Taylor led wildflower identification walks so we can distinguish the good guys from the bad guys.

A big thanks also goes to the businesses and local organizations who shared information about their services: Alpine Gardens, BP Reclamation, Native Habitats and Landscaping, Blue River Restoration Project, Colorado Division of Water Resources, Colorado Division of Wildlife, Colorado State Forest, Colorado State University Master Gardener Program, Friends of Eagles Nest Wilderness, Greater Alma Recreation, Trails and Open Space, Senior Garden, Summit County Garden Club, Summit Recycling Project and Trout Unlimited.

Raffle prizes from many already mentioned plus City Gardeners, Dansk, and Summit Landscaping helped round out the fun.

Thank you!

Bruce Bowen, event chairman
