Despite the rainfall last Saturday, the first annual Buffalo Trails Noxious Weed Pull Day did take place was a big success.

Rod Litzell of the Johnson County Weed & Pest Department reported that 35 people took part in the event and 836 pounds of Spotted Knapweed, Hound stongue, and Mullein were collected along the trail system.

The “pull day” was co-sponsored by Johnson County Weed & Pest, the US Forest Service, BLM, UW Extension, and Clear Creek Conservation District along with the Trails System.

Litzell is reminding everyone that the weed bounty program will pay 50-cents per pound of weeds collected…

The bounty program will continue as long as funds are available or until the weeds go to seed later this summer.
