Bring Your Weeds to Willow Bend!

Sunday, September 20th from 10am-2pm. Do you have a mystery plant growing in your yard? Is it taking over?

Bring in your "suspect" (or a picture of it) and a representative of the San Francisco Peaks Weed Management Area will identify it for you. If it's a "bad guy" we will give you tips on how to manage it. We will also have information about local weed groups in your area that are working on restoration projects and improving their neighborhood environment!
