Come visit the Missoula County Weed District and Extension Office on Saturday, Aug. 26, for the Clark Fork Farmers Market.
This week’s booth will focus on Biocontrol Insects. Melissa Maggio-Kassner, our biocontrol specialist, will be on site to discuss the benefits and capabilities of biocontrol insects in weed management. Root weevil intended to control spotted knapweed will be available to the public upon donation (generally accepted amount: $40). All donations are used to fund our “Youth in Restoration” team with various local restoration projects.
