WILDLIFE TRIVIA QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Ruse?
|"Weed Warriors" (News.bytes Extra)
The battle against the spread of noxious weeds continues this spring, as northeast California's teams of Weed Warriors take to the field. Working on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management - and areas administered by partner agencies - the teams locate, map and eradicate stands of weeds that threaten land health and productivity.
