MANZANITA – On Thursday, Feb. 14, the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council hosts Troy Abercrombie for his talk “A Marginally Comprehensive Overview of Invasive Weeds Management” at the Pine Grove Community House, 225 Laneda Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

Abercrombie is the invasive weeds program coordinator at the Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District. Drawing on a decade of work in weed management in both the public and private sectors, he will introduce us to the major species of concern for Tillamook County. He will also talk about Integrated Pest Management as a framework for weed control and a bit of discussion about herbicides.

Before Abercrombie’s talk, the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council will hold its February board meeting. This is an opportunity for the public to see how the watershed council operates.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. The presentation will start at 7:10 p.m. following a brief update from the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council at 7 p.m.

This event is part of the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council’s regular Speaker Series.
