Last summer, interns Matt Springsteen and Connor Land surveyed sites around Sheridan County to help identify, track and map invasive medusahead and ventenata. It was part of a partnership between SCLT and Sheridan County Weed & Pest Control District. The information they collected is utilized by a group of regional partners collectively called the North East Wyoming Invasive Grass Working Group. The interns’ work was made possible by grant from the Dan and Jeanne Scott Family Foundation.
Recently, the Land Trust Alliance selected the partnership that supported their work as an example of community-driven partnerships that can help localities manage and adapt to living among invasive species. You can read about how that work helped in the Spring 2020 edition of Saving Land Magazine below.
