Community weed pull event taking shape

The Deschutes County Weed Advisory Board and the “Let’s Pull Together” event organizers are gearing up for noxious weed pulling events that begin Saturday, June 11, during Noxious Weed Awareness Week. The week’s weed pull events help to educate in preserving Central Oregon’s ecosystem from non-native noxious weeds.

Noxious weeds are non-native invasive species that threaten our ecosystem. They not only smother growth of native plants, but they starve wildlife, use water and create allergens. Noxious weeds also can become tremendous ladder fuels that can radically change the speed and fury at which wildfires burn.

“Let’s Pull Together” is a countywide noxious weed pull event. Participants in the event include neighborhood and homeowners associations, city and county government and boards, park and school districts, utilities, private and public entities, businesses and incredible volunteers. The weed pull events are family-friendly and everyone is welcome to attend.
