SW Area Council offers materials for training seasonals

With the cancellation of the various training opportunities, especially crew training that are vital to our county and agencies folks, some of the Southwestern areas have created a training/information file that you can pull from. The folder contains information to help weed manager’s train their summer personnel in some of the more critical aspects that many try to cover in their regular crew trainings. Some of the materials include: herbicide safety and PPE, reading the label and laws for applying herbicides. We also included some materials exotic vs. native thistles, roadside safety, EDDMapS and other hopefully helpful materials. We also included some guidelines produced by Missoula County regarding Covid 19 that you might want to use as a template for your county or agency. We will try to add information when we can that we feel might be helpful so keep checking back. We wish all a safe and healthy season and look forward to seeing everyone in the near future! – Margie Edsall
