With recent wet summers, invasive weed species have been spreading throughout our watershed. Species like leafy spurge damage pastures, stream banks and lakeshores.
In 2014, WUQWATR coordinated the Qu’Appelle Strategic Weed Management Project with the RMs of McKillop, Lumsden, and Edenwold, and the Town Of Lumsden.
Summer student Ben Lockert helped to map areas of leafy spurge infestation for control. WUQWATR also prepared information on invasive weeds for the general public.
