Description

The 4-County CWMA is planning a fantastic day in Washington County! Bring your coworkers and join us in the field to check out some of the great restoration and weedy sites in the county. We will be talking about a number of weeds, including Euphorbia virgata, Arum italicum, and Solanum carolinense. We will also have the opportunity to see the native Penstemon hesperius, hopefully in bloom. Reserve your FREE spot now!
