Survey was part of annual meeting activities

Invasive plant control is a top topic of interest for members of the Linn County Small Woodlands Association.

That’s according to a survey presented at the chapter’s annual meeting and reviewed June 5 by the board of directors.

Lee Peterman, chapter activities director, said “30-something” surveys were returned.
Mill tours, he said, were listed as another high-interest target along with mushroom harvesting and wildflower tours.

The survey contained three choices with “high, medium or low interest” levels, said Peterman. Mill tours as activities scored the most “high” returns, but “in the aggregate” invasive plants was the topic most named.

Peterman said the survey results show that a range of topics appeal to the general membership, including plant identification, invasive species and other diverse subjects, from which future workshops might be implemented.

The survey was borrowed from the Benton County chapter of OSWA. It was adapted to reflect the Linn chapter’s unique circumstances and concerns, Peterman noted.
