Fall 2016.  Curt Gowdy Burdock Removal was conducted in September 2016 by Audubon volunteers.  Burdock is an invasive species that grows in wetter areas.  Growing about 8 feet tall in Wyoming, the prickly little seed clusters can trap small birds that touch them, with starvation the unfortunate outcome.  Burdock is also a nuisance to people, their pets and livestock.
