Like it or not, the plants that surround us are often NOT the plants that would be here without people and their constant tinkering with the environment.
Non-native species abound, and efforts to eradicate invasive species are ongoing. But not always with the use of pesticides.
Mount Shasta residents and friends gather this weekend (April 8) for a second annual community weed pull, designed to get the invasives out and replace them with native plants.
Weed Pull coordinator Rebeca Franco visits with details of the effort and its scope.
