Cheatgrass is an annual invasive grass, and its range is expanding in the Gunnison Basin. This plant increases wildfire frequency, reduces forage for livestock and big game, and reduces the quality of wildlife habitat. If you want to learn how to control this plant on your land, please join us for a FREE informational workshop on cheatgrass ecology and management!

  • Cheatgrass identification
  • Impacts of grazing on cheatgrass
  • Impacts of cheatgrass on fire
  • Treatment options
  • Reducing the spread
  • Other weeds to treat
  • How to calibrate equipment
  • Public‐private treatment collaboration
