Invasive weed hunt launched for prizes

Posted: Friday, July 02, 2010

JUNEAU - The Juneau Cooperative Weed Management team has launched a contest as part of Invasive Weed Awareness Week.

Organizers are challenging locals to complete a weed scavenger hunt by hunting down invasive species in the Juneau area and turning in a form for a chance to win prizes.

Prizes include gift certificates to Landscape Alaska, $150 worth of heirloom seeds from Rainbow Foods, fresh bread, t-shirts, primroses from the Jensen-Olson Arboretum and basil starts.

The deadline for the contest is July 12. For more information, or to obtain a scavenger hunt form, contact Dana White at invasive.plants.jnu@gmail.com.
