Curt Gowdy / Pole Mountain cheatgrass project
This spring over 7,800 acres of cheatgrass was sprayed to improve wildlife habitat. Cheatgrass is an invasive annual grass that outcompetes native vegetation. Now the native vegetation in this area will thrive. This will improve wildlife habitat, increase wildflowers for the pollinators, and decrease soil erosion. For more information on this project, cheatgrass, or any weeds email firstname.lastname@example.org.
