Event description

Description

Are you frustrated with weeds engulfing your property? Do you want to know how to identify major weeds and eliminate them? Have you recently moved to Central Oregon and want to avoid creating a habitat for weeds to grow? Then join Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs) and weed experts from Jefferson and Crook Counties for a FREE workshop that will help you manage invasive weeds on your own property. You are encouraged to bring weeds to the workshop for hands-on consultations with our experts.

We will start with a 30-minute slideshow on common weeds of this area, and you will be provided with color copies of all the material covered during the program. After the presentation, we will have a question and answer period where you can talk to any of our experts about appropriate land treatment and restoration ideas. Refreshments will be provided at this time. Finally, those participants interested in seeing weeds on the ground can break into small groups for a walk from the Juniper Room to continue the conversation.

Seating is limited in the Juniper Room, so registration is required and opens one month before each event at www.fansofdeschutes.org. This two hour workshop is free to all. The costs have been underwritten by a Tri-County Weed Grant from the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

If you can’t make the workshop or need a more in-depth weed consultation on your property at Crooked River Ranch, FANs weed team volunteers are available to come to your property, walk it with you, and advise you on how to control the weeds. In addition, we will point out native plants that you’ll want to protect. The consultation fee is $30 for FANs members and $40 for non-members. This fee includes a 26-page packet with color photos of common weeds and helpful resources. Call Penny Radtke at 541-410-0299 or e-mail fansofdeschutes@gmail.com to schedule a consultation.


This event is sponsored by Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs), a group founded in 2011 by landowners surrounding the Deschutes Canyon-Steelhead Falls Wilderness Study Area in Central Oregon who came together over their shared love of nearby public lands. The focus area of FANs includes many special places such as Steelhead Falls, Alder Springs, the Peninsula, Otter Bench and Scout Camp. Become a member by visiting our website at www.fansofdeschutes.org. Memberships are just $10 per person per year.
