Weeds, Wildlands and More

Cody, WY: The East Yellowstone Collaborative and Partners are hosting a Weeds, Wildlands, and More! ag expo August 29th from 3-7pm at the Cody Club Room in Cody, WY. The goal of the event is to connect landowners and community members to land-related resources that rehab landscapes, support working lands, wildlife, native plants, and more. There will be door prizes (local steaks!) and refreshments for all.

“Over a year ago, the Park County Weed and Pest approached us about hosting an event that helps people rehab the places they love and learn about available resources for landowners, small and large. Here we are a year later, and all the pieces are coming together” said Laura Bell, event organizer and facilitator of the East Yellowstone Collaborative, a group of NGOs that works to conserve private working lands along the Absaroka Front.

The event brings together groups, experts, and resources with the primary goal of helping people help the land. Groups attending include: Absaroka Fence Initiative, Cad’s Farm Beef, Cody Craft Brewing, Cody Cattlewomen, Conservation and Irrigation Districts, East Yellowstone Collaborative, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Farm Services Agency, Ishawooa Mesa Ranch, Master Gardeners, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Nature Conservancy, Park County Open Lands, Pitchfork Ranch, Trout Unlimited, UW Extension, and Western Landowners Alliance. “Good stewardship of land, healthy wildlife, and good food from the land go hand in hand,” says Bell.

“We get calls every day from small landowners needing help controlling invasive weeds and wanting to learn how to be more productive with their land”, said Ann Trosper, Powell Clarks Fork Conservation District ED. “This event is a new approach to supporting people with land issues, and I want them to know that we can help deploy resources and tools that address a range of issues like irrigation water, weeds, and zero-scaping”, she went on to say.

Weeds, Wildlands, and More! is open to everyone. Visitors are encouraged to drop in anytime between three and seven to explore tables and enjoy snacks and a cash bar. Door prizes, including some local ranch steaks, will be awarded! Cody Craft Brewing, using locally grown hops, will be serving. “No formal presentations are planned, but there will be lots of tables, good conversations, and socializing for everyone,” said Laura Bell.
