Brazilian Pepper Eradication
Tuesday, November 11 9am

We had 5 people at the training class on Tuesday, November 4. Vic gave a presentation on plant ID, equipment used, & work locations. We then loaded up the new trailer with the needed items and proceeded down to the property just Northwest of #4 bridge to review the work location. We will start the Eradication program at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, November 11 near the Dennis Andrews residence. If you can come and help, or want more information, contact Roger at
