The Conservancy will again be employing digital aerial sketch mapping, which allows staff to map weeds via computer from a helicopter.
This year, seasonal teams lead by West Idaho conservation manager Art Talsma and West Idaho land steward Mike Atchison will be on the ground in Hells Canyon, Garden Creek Ranch Preserve, the Owyhees and other areas of western Idaho.
The team's notes and photos from the field will appear on the blog throughout the summer. Check back frequently.
