Join us at Z Bar Ranch (Big Island, Waimea) for our third Pasture Walk.

Zanga Schutte (Z Bar Ranch LLC), Carolyn Wong (USDA-NRCS), and James Leary (UH-CES) will share some pasture restoration techniques that have been successful (and economical!) when dealing with fireweed infestations.

  • Learn when fireweed is a problem.
  • Which herbicides work and how.
  • What’s a Wet-Blade?
  • Update on bio-control efforts.
  • Calibrate your very own sprayer! Bring it with you!

  • When:
    Saturday, June 2, 9:00am until 11:00pm (or whenever you’ve had enough)

    Where: Z Bar Ranch, Mana Road, Waimea.

    What to Wear and Bring: Expect light walking in possibly wet pasture. A pencil, pad of paper and a calculator will come in handy. Pack a chair, sunscreen, hat, drinks and snacks if you think you’ll need all that.

    Directions: Turn left at the intersection of Mana Rd and Kahilu Rd. The group will meet along the road and move into the pasture shortly after 9am.
