The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council in partnership with the Northeast Nebraska Weed Management Area (NNWMA) is hosting an educational workshop and tour on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. This free event will be held at the Antelope County Courthouse basement meeting room, 501 Main St., from 9 a.m. until noon. No registration is required. Questions can be addressed to Bruce Ofe, Antelope County Weed Superintendent at 402-887-4659.
Landowners, County Board members, Natural Resource District Board members, and interested citizens are encouraged to attend this Weed Workshop. Topics will include the invasive Yellow Flag Iris, efforts with biocontrol agents in controlling noxious weeds, mechanical and chemical control of Salt Cedar, and accomplishments of the NNWMA. A tour to a site containing Yellow Flag Iris will complete the morning’s event which will then be followed by lunch.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. The NNWMA covers an eight-county area and 4,610,212 acres of private, public, and tribal land. NNWMA has technical support from the Northeast Nebraska RC&D, a local non-profit.
