Join the League to Save Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District, and the Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association for a community weed pull event on August 7th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Tahoe Keys.

Volunteers will be helping to remove invasive weeds that are threatening Tahoe’s native plant species, wildlife habitat, and the surrounding watershed. As a participant, you will learn about invasive weeds, how to properly remove them, and how to plant a Tahoe friendly landscape.

Invasive weeds are plants that grow aggressively, spread quickly and choke out native and other desirable plants from the native landscape. They produce enormous amounts of seed, have spreading root systems, and lack natural predators. These traits enable them to dominate entire landscapes.

The following are some of the invasive weeds have been found in the Lake Tahoe Basin: bull thistle, oxeye daisy, scotch broom, yellow toadflax, and perennial pepperweed.

Volunteers should wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle. Work gloves will be provided if volunteers do not have a pair. Please bring a digging shovel if available, but not required. If you would like more information on volunteering for this event please call 530-541-5388, or email
