Bassett Creek Weed Pull, Trail #134 2022 Jul 16, 2022

Close To: Gardiner, Pray, Emigrant, Livingston

Spots Available: 7/10

Description: Eight minutes from the town of Gardiner and Yellowstone National Park, the Bassett Creek Trail provides hikers and riders with wilderness access and great opportunities for solitude, due to the low number of users that travel it. The Gardiner Ranger District has identified a zone, two miles from the trailhead, where biannual pulling, spraying, and seed collecting will curb the spread of Houndstongue and Thistle. The trail and surrounding area is core winter range for Elk and is crossed by migration paths of Mule Deer, making the preservation of native plants by stopping invasive weeds a worthwhile effort.

Work: On this single-day project, we will survey, identify, and pull/spray houndstongue within the first two miles of the trail.

Difficulty: Less strenuous: We will hike a round-trip total of four miles and be pulling weeds not too far off the trail.

Meeting time & location: 9:00 a.m. at the Bassett Creek Trailhead
