About this Event
Join community members for a day of pulling the invasive annual grass, cheatgrass, from our alleys, lawns and public spaces in the town of Gunnison. This invader grows in town and then is spread by mountain bikers, hikers, runners, dogs and dog walkers, campers, hunters, anglers.
We will meet to address a significant problem that alters the sagebrush ecosystem, changes it to a pure stand of a summer dead grass, that is pokey and inedible to anything. By pulling the grass before it seeds out, we can reduce it and save our sagebrush, our mule deer and elk, our sage-grouse and so many other species of wildlife. This helps prevent wildfire and improve range conditions for livestock.
Thank you for being part of the solution! Great prizes are available as well as food, games and drinks.
We appreciate our sponsors: Marios, Gunnison County, Sisk-a-dee, Gene Taylors and Colorado Parks and Wildlife
