Bishop, CA (April 16, 2009)...The Inyo National Forest, Mt. Whitney Ranger District, is preparing an Environmental Assessment for a proposed project to eradicate perennial pepperweed (Lepidium latifolium), a non-native noxious weed, from a small area along the Blackrock-Kern Trail near Jordan Hot Springs in the Golden Trout Wilderness. This project is intended to eradicate the weed from the area by cutting the stems of the plant followed by wick application of imazapyr, an herbicide registered for use in California. No spraying or ground disturbance will be done. In addition to treating the 10 x 15 foot area known to contain perennial pepperweed, the project would also include surveying both the Blackrock-Kern and Wildrose Trails and treating other pepperweed occurrences that are found. Additional information regarding this action can be obtained from Sue Weis, Assistant Forest Botanist, at 873-2496 or sweis@fs.fed.us.
