Mole and Gopher Seminar

Thank you to Texas A&M Agrilife Extension for setting up our seminar with Mr. and Mrs. Koehler. It was informative and very helpful with information on how to identify and trap/kill gophers or moles. Attached are the handouts.

Grass Burrs Seminar – January 19, 2019

Dry states like Texas, New Mexico and Arizona have to deal with prickly stickers in your lawn from time to time. Also known as:  Sandburrs, Grass Burrs, Sticker Burrs/Burr Stickers, Pricking Monsters, Lawn/Grass Stickers, these are all referring to the same nasty weed. They thrive in the heat and are prominently found in Bermuda and St. Augustine lawns.

If you have had a problem with grass burrs in the past – the upcoming seminar offered by ORWMA is for you.  The best time of the year to try and prevent grass burrs is fast approaching.  In an effort to help us learn all we can about eliminating this weed, our new Colorado County Ag Extension Agent, Laramie Naumann, will present a seminar for the landowners in Oakridge Ranch.

Please save the date: The seminar will be held on Saturday, January 19th at 9:00 at the Oakridge Community Center.   The seminar is being offered free of charge – so please plan to attend.
