Report from Carpet Burweed Patrol – June 11 & 12, 2012 (Cattle Point)

Margaret Lidkea reports:  “Christina Ross and I busted bur weed yesterday for 2 hours and finger plucked 2 sandwich baggies crammed full of burweed.  We found 2 spots south of the corral, then there were several spots north of it and also one spot east but still on the grass path.  We only found 2 plants in the rocky areas with vernal pools. Good thing we went down because the seeds have just started and were quite rare, although both of us were pricked. Attached is a photo of our baggies and another photo of burweed, the inconspicuous flowers (green) and the dagger seed compared to a dime. Hopefully we’ve contributed to the invasive removal effectively.”
