July workshop: Controlling knotweed along creeks
Brodhead Watershed Association will host a workshop in July, part of the Greening Mountainhome Series, on how to control knotweed along creeks — and in your backyard.
Register for a live, on-stream workshop led by Robin Anglemyer. Learn the right time to cut knotweed, what tools you need, how low to cut it (hint: ankle height is too low!), and what to do next. The tentative date is Wednesday, July 7, at 4 p.m. — but exact timing of the workshop will depend on weather conditions and knotweed growth. Register now to get detailed updates.
On the day of the event, workers from Strauser Nature’s Helpers will clear knotweed along Mill Creek in Mountainhome from Route 191 to Route 390 to Wieboldt Road — keep an eye out!
