Cheatgrass is an annual invasive grass, and its range is expanding across the Western Slope. This plant increases wildfire frequency, reduces forage for livestock and big game, and reduces the quality of wildlife habitat. 

If you want to learn how to control this plant on your land, please join us for a FREE informational workshop on cheatgrass ecology and management! We will cover the topics below and also provide information about partnerships and funding resources to help address this invasive plant on your land. 

This event is organized and taught by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies, and hosted by Shavano Conservation District and Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership.

Topics will include: 

• Cheatgrass identification & ecology 

• Impacts of grazing on cheatgrass 

• Treatment options 

• Reducing the spread 

Cost is FREE but RSVP required. Dinner will be provided!
