This four mile walking treatment and research tour will explore various treatment alternatives and their effectiveness while identifying the impacts of treatment timing and maintenance. Implementation challenges and opportunities will be discussed, notably those involving permitting and funding pathways.

Attendees are asked to bring a brown bag lunch and refillable water bottle. This tour will involve hiking about four miles on a well maintained trail with gentle slopes.
