Weed management, reclamation among topics at wildfire workshop

Smoke in the skies was a common scene during summer 2012.

Weed management after a fire, post-wildfire reclamation and fuels mitigation are among topics at a free wildfire workshop in Rock River.

The Rural Living in Wyoming Wildfire Workshop begins at 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in the Rock River Town Hall.

“We hope that folks will get information to help combat weeds that may become a problem in the burned areas,” said Kellie Chichester, UW Extension educator serving southeast Wyoming. “We also want to provide information on reclaiming those burned grazing lands.”

RSVP is requested by Tuesday, Oct. 23. Contact Chichester at 307-721-2571, by FAX at 307-742-4228, or by email at kelliec@uwyo.edu.
