Innovation at Pine Street Woods

Kaniksu Land Trust’s new director of communications, Marcy Timblin, writes in the Bonner County Daily Bee that 2020 was a year of land management and organizational innovation for KLT at Pine Street Woods and elsewhere. At Pine Street Woods, a KLT-owned property managed for recreation, education and conservation, KLT and partners worked to reduce noxious weeds with the help of Avista, goats, sheep, llamas and yaks to trim the flower heads of blooming hawkweed and knapweed.
