The third meeting for the 2019 series will take place on Friday, April 26, 2019 at the W.E. Hill Community Center located at 1000 Main Street in Sealy.

In addition to identifying problem species we will cover the ins and outs of why we have the weeds we do, how to determine the most effective treatment option, as well as covering a variety of herbicides and application methods for management and control of these plants. This is a great opportunity for any and all landowners to learn from the experts in a classroom setting and have a great opportunity to see equipment and demonstrations as part of the day. Also, if you have a weed or brush sample you would like identified please bring it and we will be glad to identify it for you. Any plant sample need to be as fresh as possible, include leaves and roots, and flower (if applicable). Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity!
