Cost to register is $20, but scholarships are available for those who (for example) would like financial assistance to cover registration of multiple crew members or for other circumstances. Please contact Julie Knudson (see contact info below) for more details.

  • Snacks, drinks, and lunch will be provided
  • Expert classroom and field instruction from Dr. Scott Nissen of Colorado State University
  • Tour of the Palisade Insectary

People who should attend:

  • Have you visited a site early in the season and thought you saw a bunch of young native plants coming up, then found out later they were all young weeds?
  • Would you like to be able to conduct early season planning or weed mapping in the future but only know what the mature plants look like?
  • Do you have a seasonal weed management crew you need to train?
  • Are you a land manager looking to learn more about what is coming up on your property?
  • Are you an environmental consultant, or oil & gas employee responsible for weed management?
  • Are you an herbicide spray contractor?
  • Are you a lawn & garden professional?
  • Are you a private landowner who just wants to know how to identify the noxious weeds on your property?
  • Are you a plant identification enthusiast who just wants to know more about the good and bad plants in the Grand Valley?
If so, please join us on Friday May 6th for a classroom portion and field tour in the Grand Valley to learn how to identify a list of local noxious weeds and select native plants in their early stages of growth (such as seedlings and rosettes), followed by a tour of the Colorado Department of Agriculture Palisade Insectary to learn more about local biocontrol options. Each attendee will receive a copy of the brand new 'Native and Non-Native Seedlings of the West' plant identification booklet which will be used as a training tool.

If you have further questions regarding the events or scholarships, please call Julie Knudson at the Tamarisk Coalition at 970-256-7400 or jknudson@tamariskcoalition.org for more information.
