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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
