Invasive weeds like Scotch broom, teasel, Dyers woad and sweet pea will be pulled up and replaced with seeds for native flora during a community event on May 4.

Mt. Shasta Community Invasive Weed Pull Day is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., with participants meeting at the Mt. Shasta City Park’s Main Lodge for breakfast, provided by Mount Shasta Rotary, before heading out to perform their task.

Teams will be sent into various areas of public land to pull invasive weeds, which will later be collected and disposed of by Mount Shasta Public Works crews.
