The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council and the Northeast Nebraska Weed Management Area will be hosting a free workshop on noxious weed control on Wednesday, August 21 at the Niobrara State Park Lodge, Niobrara, NE.  The event is open to the public and begins with registration at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude by 2:30 p.m.   Lunch will be provided.  Farmers, ranchers, and others interested in learning more about noxious weeds and their control should make plans to attend. 
This workshop, “Focus on the Future of a Weed-free Horizon,” will feature a variety of speakers discussing the types of noxious weeds and those on the “watch-list” found in the area, methods of noxious weed control in pastures, fields, and in wildlife habitat sites.  A special presentation by the Niobrara Public School’s Purple Loosestrife Project group will be given on their efforts.  Funding for the workshop is provided by a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust.
