Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus Terrestris, commonly referred to as Goatheads or Puncture Vine, is an invasive noxious weed that originated in Eurasia. A goathead vine can begin forming flowers within 15 to 25 days from germination. Within 6 weeks, goatheads appear with each consisting of five razor sharp thorns which hold two to four seeds. Left unchecked, the plant can grow 10+ feet in diameter and drop hundreds of thorns. Goatheads are a tough adversary.
We are tougher.

Our Priorities

 

Schools

Our goal is for kids to ride bikes to school without any flat tires. Wenatchee and Eastmont Public Schools have committed to keeping the school grounds goathead free. Volunteer Warriors are needed to expand goathead free zones in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Bicycle Lanes

Goathead infestations on bicycle lanes and trails undermines their value and defeats their purpose. Our goal is “zero infestations.

Neighborhoods

Our core strategy is eliminating goatheads street-by-street, neighborhood-by-neighborhood. This requires Warriors willing to control their block. Lower income neighborhoods often have higher infestation levels Beat the goatheads here and we can win anywhere. Winning requires tough, committed Warriors willing to patrol once every three weeks.

 

We Need You!

Our Warriors made huge progress in reducing and eliminating goathead infestations in 2016, 2017 and 2018. For 2019 we need new tough, dedicated volunteers to win the battle in your neighborhood, school and on the riverfront. Join the fight!
