The Panhandle Resource Conservation & Development, Inc. (R C & D) has received a grant totaling $15,000 from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund. These funds will be used for the removal of noxious and invasive weeds to increase hunting and fishing opportunities in the 11 counties of the Panhandle.

The High Plains Weed Management Association, which operates through the oversight of the Panhandle R C & D, will be responsible for the removal of the noxious and invasive weeds in these areas. The weeds that will be targeted for removal include common mullein.
