The Cariboo Regional District Invasive Plant Management program will host the Weeds and the Works workshop on Thursday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The event will take place at the Pioneer Complex, 351 Hodgson Rd. in Williams Lake.
Through the Invasive Plant Management program, the CRD assists area landowners, farmers and ranchers tackle invasive plant problems.
The session will cover herbicide physiology and product information, aerial applications, safe handling and usage of herbicides, the importance of calibration, and a hands-on demonstration of spray equipment calibration.
Demonstrations of backpack, truck-mounted and ATV mounted sprayers will be part of the practical session.
A tractor boom sprayer will be on display during the workshop to show proper calibration techniques.
Participants are encouraged to bring their spray equipment if they would like some professional calibration assistance.
